This week Jack and Abby experienced 2 firsts. When your kids are infants and toddlers, it seems like everyday is a new first. At 8 and almost 5 firsts are hard to come by AND they definitely don't happen in the same 24-hour period.
Wednesday night, Jack played his first water polo game. He had fun. He swam fast. He began to understand the importance of offense AND defense. In a game of boys vs. girls- the girl prevailed. We took lots of pictures and some video.
On Thursday night, Abby swam in her first swim meet. No one was sure how this would turn out especially from the kid who is constantly swimming on the bottom of the pool and begging to get out of practice. We were so unsure we even bribed her with a "Campfire Blast" from Sonic after the meet. She was so happy!!! She was so serious!!! She was so ssssslllloooooooowwwwww! But she made it. Do I have pictures to document this historical occasion? NOPE! The camera was missing, Steve had it last not me! Typical second child stuff, I made an extra deposit in the therapy fund this morning. We will make we sure that we take a bunch next week!
