Last night Maddy was recounting the week and what a hard week it's been!
First, swimming lessons started. Normally, she loves going to the pool and has never minded swimming lessons before. However, after some really hot days the prior week, Monday dawned very cool -- like 65 to 70 degrees at swim lesson time . . . at an outdoor pool that is not heated. They say it's heated, but if it is, it's not heated very much. Each day has been a little warmer, but with lessons in the morning, it's been a bit on the chilly side. Plus, one day the lessons were cancelled due to rain and a make-up lesson is scheduled for Saturday. That totally bummed her out -- she's not supposed to have swimming lessons on a Saturday!!
Second, a little baby bird that's been hanging around the house has disappeared! Pray that the neighborhood cats have not done him in! We think the bird was just learning to fly. After it sat on our porch for hours, we saw it fly from the porch to the garage roof and then it hopped along the roof for awhile -- only to disappear and not be seen since about 8 PM Thursday evening. She's worried -- what could have happened to that baby bird?? Such a tender heart!
Next, some little flower seeds she planted that were growing fabulously seem to have suddenly stopped. I think they need more soil! Fingers crossed that a replanting will help those little sprouts!
So, we are hoping for warmer temps and a warmer pool, sightings of the baby bird and flower re-potting along with some celebrating of the special Dads in our family!
