Our first week of school couldn’t have gone better. Megan and Gavin adjusted well to their new routines, and we swam for hours every afternoon in the August heat. I had a nice daily break (and often a nap!) during Ben’s nap time, and everyone went to bed happy and exhausted at the end of the day.
The pool has been extra fun since our friends the McGoverns moved in. They have two loud, assertive, redheaded daughters (ages 6 and 3), and they fit in well with our boisterous bunch. Unfortunately, they are only going to be in the building for a few months, as they are in corporate housing, but their new house is just minutes away.
