Playschool Pool Party Day

"The whole object of travel is not to set foot on foreign land; it is at last to set foot on one's own country as a foreign land." -- G.K. Chesterton

Tile Guy & his wife were here bright & early this morning. Shower floor should be laid today and the rest of the bathroom floor. WOW. In just a few shorts days I'll be luxuriating in a new shower and tub. Which to do first? shower? bath? bath then shower?? decisions, decisions!

I've got a travel quote up there today because last night at dinner Kendall went around the table in a clockwise fashion and made each one of us tell her what our dream vacations are. First round Chris said Australia, I said Venice, Italy (because Australia was already taken), Taylor said Japan. Kendall said Oregon. Second round was sort of the same with Taylor saying Belgium & Switzerland for their chocolates. Kendall said Washington. Third round Chris said Alaska, I said Madrid, Taylor said South America. Kendall said Idaho. Chris convinced her to change the Idaho response to Hawaii. I think at one point in the game she even said New Jersey was one of her dream vacations? What are we talking here, Kendall? Hoboken? Newark?? When we got home from dinner she sat down w/ a map of the US and circled all the states she's been in and made Chris & I make lists of all the places we've been. So for today's blog I tried to find pictures representative of each of our dream vacations. The best I could do for Oregon was a picture of an alleged UFO hovering somewhere in Oregon.

Today I'm having my babies from my last year's playschool class come over to swim and have fun. The babies (I guess now I should be calling them toddlers) continued to get together each week all summer and Taylor babysits for a couple of them. Margaret & I had the most wonderful, sweetest children last year and they really spoiled it for us. We're afraid to start school in 2 weeks. Life is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you're going to get. I'm afraid. I'm very afraid.

Bumpus Middle School has their first home games tonight. Go Bumpus! Go Bumpus! and KJ & I have cheer practice in 105 heat. It's all good.
