Heather brought me some cotton she picked up at Craftmart a couple of weeks ago. These will be Mason Dixon washcloths in the future.

We took the kids to a birthday party at the neighbors over the weekend. Hannah was jumping off this diving board into the deep end with all the other "big" kids. Her swimming has really taken off in the last month when one of her friends came over and was swimming like a fish. It was like a switch (probably the competitive one) turned and she is doing great!
Simon is still in his swim vest but that is such a lifesaver. We can watch from the side and he is happy as a clam.
In other news, the kids are going to "Camp Grandma & Grandpa" tonight. It started out as just Hannah but I think it would have gotten real ugly fast when someone (cough, Hannah) started gloating about how she got to go without him. You can all imagine it in your head.

You can see Pirate Simon all ready. (He loves that pirate hat he got at McDonalds.)
Hannah is packed and was packed within 10 minutes of getting up this morning.
Hmmm....what to do??? David & I haven't been home alone, in our house, since Hannah was born. I think some nice cheeses and a bottle of champagne are in order.

Hope you come up for air soon! ;)

Your children are so darned cute. I love the photos!
And yay for time alone!
(I'm envious of that cotton yarn. I'm going to make those dishcloths for my grammies and mom for Christmas. I need to get cracking.)

What bright and shiny faces! Isn't it funny how restless it feels at first being without the kids? You will manage....:)

Hope the kids had a great time at Camp G&G and that you and David got to spend some quality time together. Love the picture of simon in the pirate hat. And is that a self portrait of hannah? She did a great job! Everytime I see a close up shot of her eyes all I can think of is how stunning they are.
