It is almost here, I can feel it. I can't wait for it! I am so psyched! Unfortunately, I managed to get sick over the weekend, yuck! I think I know how it happened too. I went to a swimming party Saturday (indoors), everything went great. The kids swam: meaning, little Benny stayed by the side of the pool dipping her feet while Wonderboy tried to learn to swim with me.
The evening was uneventful, other than a 35 lbs child jump to me on the 5 foot deep water and considering that I am only 5 foot 2 inches, when the little girl jumped, she sent us both down the pool! There I was trying to get her to the side of the pool while trying very hard not to sink in. I know how to float very well but when she jumped, I barely had a chance to put my arms up to grab her. Anyways, that was nothing. At the end, we are getting the kids dressed, hubby goes out to the bathroom to get Wonderboy dressed and little Benny stays by the pool with me, while I got my t-shirt on and pants (didn't get a chance to get this one). I sit her down, I look to the pool and there are two little kids playing around. The first one jumps in the pool and the other follows. Well the first one knows how to swim, the second one doesn't. So I see him struggling, arms flapping, head sinking, his little eyes in terror, so I instantly jump in, t-shirt and all! Grab him by the chest and push him to the outside of the pool. His Grandpa (I think it was his Grandpa) runs to him and makes sure he is okay, thanks me and they go to the side (where I am sure the little kid got a small lesson about jumping in). Anyways, my dry clothes got soaked. I ended up going home with wet clothes. I didn't spend much time outside with them on but apparently the few minutes was enough to get me a bit under the weather. I guess, a cold is not a bad trade off.
The pictures above are from our weekend. Signs of Spring are popping everywhere. Even the birds have started to chirp around our homes. I am so excited! I love warm weather. I can do without the snow and the cold. What signs of Spring have you seen where you live? Post pics on your blog of First Signs of Spring around your neighborhood, let's make it a pre-Spring photo shoot!
