I kid you not! This morning when I let the girls out to potty at 6:30 a.m., it was 52 freakin' degrees outside. Brrrr. Plus, the wind was blowing at 15 MPH!
Water aerobics is my favorite form of exercise and I plan the night before for the morning class. Well let me tell you something: I packed a king-size towel, threw in a jacket for afterward and said a bit of a prayer for warm weather by the time I had to leave at 8:40.
But alas, at 8:15 it was still only a very chilly and windy 60.
I'm pretty sure I would've "suited up" and gone to class if it hadn't been for that wind.
So I was pretty bummed. No class for me. Jackson joined us early this morning.
He is now an official kindergarten graduate. Today was the first day of summer break. He wasn't quite understanding about this entire thing called a "break". Since my original plan was to leave him for some bonding time with grandpa while I went to class and that didn't pan out, we switched to a whole new itinerary.
Once everyone ate breakfast and I packed up lunch/dinner for Steve, Jackson and I went to the library. Both of us signed up for the summer reading program and checked out some books. After that we headed over to Safeway for some blueberries and to get my "freebie" items from our rewards card. But our morning didn't end there!
After we arrived home and got the food put away, we realized that the day had warmed up considerably-we were at a very pleasant 72 and the wind had vanished. We hooked up the girls and walked to the farthest pocket park. Jackson jumped off some of his breakfast energy and the dogs were thrilled to get out of the house for an hour.
Lunch was next on the list of things to enjoy. Must say, our J has quite an appetite! Good to see it too. Then we read his library book. It was a re-telling of the "Three Billy Goats Gruff". Cute and he enjoyed the story and that he's now able to read quite a bit of the book on his own.
Before we both knew it, Sam and Bryce had arrived and they three younger Nadels were off for their own afternoon adventures.
As for me, I'm about to enjoy the rest of the day and part of the evening with some alone time.
