Three at the pool

Today we went to the pool for swim team stroke clinic and stayed for a couple hours after just having fun until Curly got really tired. I finally remembered to bring the camera to get him "swimming". He is so funny. He absolutely LOVES to swim. Apparently I wasn't moving fast enough getting him ready and he saw the floatie and just flipped out. Eventually we got into the water and he was just fine, even getting splashed in the face.

Home again, home again

When we got to Camp Maywood to pick up Moe, he and his group had just gotten to the pool to swim. He told us that after swimming he HAD to play baseball and then basketball so he couldn't leave yet. We opted to get a late lunch (which we had originally planned to do anyway but just thought he'd be ready to have something besides camp food and would go with us) and come back to get him. Luckily, when we returned he was ready to go, having apparently missed the games he wanted to play by opting to swim instead.

He got in the car talking about what he was going to do next year and what he needed to bring. I knew he would love it. And Larry's ready to go, too. He actually wanted to stay on Sunday when we dropped Moe off. We told him he'd have to wait until next year for his turn.

Moe said he only took a few photos this week. Since we didn't get home tonight until 7 p.m., obviously we haven't had those developed yet. Tomorrow is a swim meet (invitational) so we'll be at the pool most of the morning I am sure. When we get the pix back if there are any "good" ones, I'll post then.

Today we took Moe to camp for the first time. He was very excited but also very nervous. We met nearly our entire family there b/c most of the children of my cousins are going to be there this week as well and everybody showed up to welcome the kids to the wilderness, so to speak.

Moe wanted a top bunk but we got to camp and checked in just late enough that only bottom bunks were left. I think he was disappointed but didn't even complain. I left Larry to do the job of photography and we only got a few decent shots that weren't ridiculous. Oh, and I won't even mention the video he got of Moe in the bathroom!

So, we'll go pick Moe up on Friday, only a few hours short of when camp is over anyway, because the boys have a swim meet (invitational) on Saturday. I sent three disposable cameras in the suitcase and can't wait to see what kind of photos we land from those.

The elusive great white

...teeth, that is. I have been trying to capture Curly's first two teeth on photo with no success. Today is his nine month celebration and in taking his monthly photo I captured a glimpse of those elusive pearly whites. Enjoy!

Also, I have been remiss about taking Moe's nine year old photo. Everytime I think about it it's not been a good time. So today, I finally got it done. Only four months late. Voila!
