Leisure & Fun
So you may be wondering what we do around here everyday. Or maybe not. Or maybe you feel like you have a pretty good idea of how we spend our time. Yes, I work, Thomas goes to school and works at school, there is also a lot of quilting, sewing and reading going around at our house. And this week in particular we have spent way too much time watching the Olympics.
Well, one thing we wish we did more of was getting outside for fun activities. We really want to hike, but honestly, where do you hike in Florida. And you would have to be absolutely crazy to head out for a hike in the middle of the summer. And its about 2 hours to the closest beach ... you can get to the water in about 45 minutes, but not a beach. So, we are talking about doing a 3K in a week or so, in then a 5K a couple weeks after that. These of course would be early morning runs. Besides this, our only outdoor activity these days is swimming. Luckily, we all love it. I honestly wish we did more of it.
So with this in mind, I've included a video below of us in the pool. I hope you enjoy! This is really just a video of P in the pool. (You don't need to see us after all in a bathing suit online.)
And because I meant to include this photo of her last time, here is one of her standing up in her room. This photo was taken a week or more ago. She can actually stand by herself for a little at a time now. And she is also saying a lot of "g" sounds(guh). So for instance, today when she saw the dogs she said "g" - as in do"g". And I pointed and said "dog," and she said "g." I think she is just realizing and recognizing the sound at the end of the word.
