We've been watching the Olympics during the day and cheering on the Americans with the events that they are in. James saw one of the swimming events and said he wanted to swim in the Olympics. Well, later that day, after his swim lessons, I asked him how he liked it, and this is what he said:
J: "I liked it mom, but it wasn't like the Olympics"
Me: "Well, all the swimmers started out like this, with learning"
J: "Oh, okay.... well I want to do my arms like this" (showing me the strokes)
I guess he's into the Olympics too.
So here are some other things that I've been up to lately.
Some of you might recognize some of these kids (the ones that are not mine)
They are Amy and John Caldwell kids. You have Tommy, Jayden (9), AJ (11), Tim, Josh (3) and James. Amy surprised me by coming by when she was here in Sierra Vista. It was so nice to see her. I met Amy way back in 2002. She called me to see if I wanted to go out to South Carolina with her to see our husbands that were in bootcamp together. Then they lived with with us for a month in Monterey before moving across the street. Then I staied with them while I was waiting for an apartment out here in SV the first time we were here. So needless to say they are great friends. I remember her kids being so little (I remember when she was potty training Jayden) and now look at them! Time flys!! Now John is getting ready to graduate from chiropractic school, and ready to move forward. By the way if you ever are going to Portugal, I know some people you can stay with....
Oh... and the other great thing that is going on.... is that Steve is coming home eon Friday!!! He is actually going to leave earlier than what was thought so he is coming home for a week before he leaves for over seas. The good thing about this is that the sooner he is over there the sooner he comes home. I've been clearing the calender for next week when he'll be here. I'm so looking forward to seeing him!
