A Gift

I realized the other morning that this summer will be the most consistant time that Cole and I have spent together since maternity leave...and he is now 7!!!! When he was younger he was in day-care all day and last year during Kinder I had to work during the summer so he was also at a day-care camp. This summer I am watching my friend's 3 boys which allows me to have Cole. This is such an amazing gift for me. I really am going to enjoy the time together and with 4 boys will probably have boy overload to boot! LOL.

To start off our first day Cole and I went to a waterpark together. We had a great time. The weather was perfect and the park wasn't crowded which meant we could speed through the lines and ride most rides twice. Despite the headache I woke up with and couldn't get rid of, we had a blast!

On Friday, we spent the 1st day with the kiddos. Cole had a great time and was disappointed that we weren't going to see them on Saturday. We went to the pool, played kickball, chase, tag, and hide-and-seek. I joined in too. Although I did manage to pull my hamstring which isn't great considering I am partcipating in a triathlon tomorrow. Oh, well. Bengay and Tylenol are helping some.

Next week all the boys are in the same basketball camp and then I am sure we will spend more time at the pool and having fun.

I am glad that you are able to spend this time with Cole. Have I ever told you that he is a GREAT little man? LOL You have done such a great job with him. He is truly a blessed kid to have a mother like you.
