Ready, set, swim!

Peter started his swimming course today. It is a week long course to prove that children float. I could do the same in two minutes - just give me a big body of water and make sure Angie is not around for a few minutes.

You may notice a slight reduction in the quality of pictures for the next few days. My camera is broken and I am using my cell phone camera until it gets fixed.

Angie has been sick as a dog and you know how sick dogs can be. She's barking. Loudly.

Mary and Ruaidhri stopped by from Ireland today, which was nice. The boys had a ball but it will be quite a few years before they can spell his name - it´s pronounced Rory. It has been over three years and since Ruaidhri is three, he has changed slightly since the last time we saw him.

Peter told me at one point today that he wanted to be a bus driver when he grows up. I immediately checked his temperature, afraid that he might be catching what Angie has.

There was no sign of fever, so I guess we need to rent a few Honeymooners episodes and let Peter learn from the great Ralph Kramden. To the moon, Mama! There are many career choices ahead of Peter and it may be that bus driver is one of them. After today's swimming lesson, I think we can safely rule out Olympic swimmer.

1) What was the best part of your day?
Peter: When I go to the pool and when I play with Ruaidhri.

2) What was the worst part of your day?
Peter: When David kicked me and hit me.

3) What would you like to do tomorrow?
Peter: When I go to the swim course with Mama.
