This morning I braved the YMCA. It is a workout for me just to get there. We survived and made it home.

Since it was 90 degrees and 90% humidity, I decided to do the hard thing. I took the kids to the splash pad. This place scares me because you can loose a kid in a nanosecond. With that being said, I knew I needed to conquer my fears. I knew that school was still on so the sheer number of kids would be down.

This is what I did…

1..2…3…4….oh where is 5…oh there he is
repeat and repeat again.

The kids did great! I only had to tell Silas to play nice with the other kids once. At the splash pad, there are only two little places that fill with water and he was being a water hog.

The silence of naps was beautiful this afternoon.

Now I have 5 children watching Dancing With The Stars. It is the only TV we watch during the week. Tomorrow is the season finale. Grace is almost beside herself. If you want to start a conversation with her, just ask about DWTS. She could tell you just about anything from this season.
