This picture was from swimming lessons today.
Last fall, I signed Ben, Jack and Drew up for swimming lessons. The lessons are run through the high school and are taught by the high school swimmers on pretty much a one-on-one basis. I thought the program was great so, I signed them up again for another session. I also told my friend Mishelle about it and she decided to sign her 4 boys up for the same session. We went the first day and it was only our 7 boys signed up...cool.
After that class, the wheels in my head started spinning...since it was only our kids signed up for the class, maybe they would make an exception for the "kindergarten and up" age requirement and let Charlie join the class....which they did!!
So, that is my "Makes My Monday" story. I really should have included a picture of Mishelle and I chatting, relaxing and enjoying the peace that can only be the result of having all 8 of our boys being taught, entertained and worn out by pretty high school girls that apparently adore them.
(Charlie, Ben, Drew, Jack, Lawson, Logan, Lake and Landon)
I probably shouldn't have included this next picture because it really would have made a much better "Not Me! Monday" post. I mean really, what kind of crazy mother would send her kids outside on the first day of February in their bathing suits in Chicago!
BTW, the boots were *totally* not my idea!! Seriously, I told them that they looked silly.
