On Friday we headed to the Botanical Gardens with yiayia, Peter, and Maria. It was a HOT day but we had fun. Saturday we were planning on going to the Greek festival for dessert followed by fireworks. Mother Nature had other plans. It started raining in the late afternoon and didn't stop until after we went to bed. Instead, we made Pad Thai and watched a new family favorite, Ponyo. After Kyla was in bed, Jon and I watched Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. We really liked it, and it was the first time we've stayed up until 11pm in a long time. On Sunday, Kyla had her last swim lesson. She jumped off the low diving board for the first time. She was so excited! Summer vacation is quickly dwindling. Today we are supposed to go to the park for a picnic with Lauren, Jacqueline, and Lucy. We'll see if Mother Nature is more forgiving today. It's very cloudy and has been sprinkling on and off this morning. This afternoon we'll be heading up to Sunview to see if the class lists have been posted. Kyla is very nervous about starting second grade. She'll be in a new hallway this year. Change and unfamiliarity are really hard on her. I don't know what it's going to be like when we move and she changes schools. Speaking of moving, we have a showing tomorrow afternoon. It would be great if they made an offer, despite how crazy it would be trying to sell, buy and move just as the school year is starting.
