So William and I are still waiting anxiously to hit the theater for Harry Potter 7 Part 2. I suppose the longer we wait, the smaller the crowds.
The line is also getting fuzzy because this past week has seen the return of a William we haven't seen in 15 months. He's been very active, borderline hyper at times. We took the family to a Rivercats baseball game (minor league team feeding the Oakland A's) last Thursday since we couldn't see the H.P. premier. Sigh. Ryan was given 4 tickets from a co-worker at the last minute (he was going to H.P). We decided to all go and buy 3 more tickets to sit on the lawn. Besides, the weather was so cool all week, it seemed sinful to wait a few weeks so we could enjoy a game in 102 degree heat! William was so sad at first and when we told him he was coming too, he almost didn't believe us. He is so used to being left out or left behind. William, Soren and I took the lawn seats (away from the crowds) and Ryan and the other boys sat in the "good" seats (in the crowd). By the end of the game, William was on cloud nine and the other boys were whining about not getting to sit on the grass. William made it onto the jumbo tron 4 times for his dancing! He just couldn't stop dancing around each time the music played!
To fudge the swimming line, I found a website gem in the FamilyFun magazine while sitting in the dentist's office. Mine lacks the artistic touches from the creative genius in the magazine, but my boys wouldn't fully appreciate the time and effort to go that far. Nor do I have the patience. Here's what resulted: Kid Wash!
