The Boat

First I want to say thank you for the input on what to do with our little Peanut. As for now we are going to leave her where she is with the plan of putting her through K1 and the K2 with the option if she is doing exceptionally well we just move her ahead. We have time :)

Today we went on my dad's boat. Last night when I went to bed the forecast said thunderstorms ALL. DAY. LONG. I got up this morning and it said partly cloudy with 10% chance of rain!!! We headed out the door for what I think was the PERFECT day for boating. The weather was absolutely gorgeous and because the forecast was calling for storms there was BARELY anyone on the water!!! We were on the water by 10am. My dad's 4 person tube (Mable) died. They now only have the two person one. The boys went out first. Then Monkey and Peanut went out, she was love, love, LOVING it. You could hear her laughter all the way in the boat. Then GG and Red went. By the time all the kids had a turn it was lunch time. We anchored the boat by the shore and we ate lunch and then went swimming. My parents neighbors came with us and the wife had some special lotion that attracts the sun to speed up tanning. I put that on and laid out for a little bit. When I got too hot I jumped in the lake to cool off. I did sunscreen the kids and my face a few times. When the adults were done swimming, because the kids could of swam the rest of the day and been happy as can be, we did more tubing. My dad and J went first. We gave Peanut one more turn with one of her siblings (I can't remember which one) before I put her to sleep. Each of the kids, except Peanut got a turn with daddy. J said Peanut didn't weigh enough and it would of been to hard to keep the tube upright. A little after 3pm we headed to the dock to put the boat away. We went back to my dad's house to unload the wet boat stuff and then went out to eat. It was such a fun and relaxing day for me. No cooking meals or cleaning up afterward. See perfect!

Anyday that includes no cooking and cleaning is a WIN in my book! I can't believe how long I have been gone...because your youngest was just a BABY the last time I saw her! Time flies! Hopefully I will be around more often now! :) Hope all is well with you and yours!
