Reading and Swimming this Summer

Got the kids all signed up for swimming lessons! This year our city changed their swimming program so sign-ups occurred pretty quickly in May. As a result of slots filling up so quickly we will be participating in swim lessons next month at a different location. The kids are excited about checking out the new place. I'm excited about that, too. 

We are also looking forward to hanging out at our favorite summer swimming spot. Lots of great people and it's never crowded even on a Saturday. I made a new friend there last summer and am looking forward to seeing her and her husband again. He's a professor at one of the Universities so it's always fun talking to them about the latest in education. Many of Fiona's friends from school plan to go swimming at this location so we are very happy about that, too.

In addition to swimming we are all set to read this summer. I got the girls signed up for the summer reading program through the city and we plan to participate in the summer reading program at their school. Every Tues, Wed, Thurs there will be an activity at their school library. They can check out books, participating in an activity, and choose free books to keep for their very own. I think the neighbor kids are going to tag along in the mornings. It will be a fun time for all. 


  1. Our local library fell victim to severe budget cuts and it is still up in the air as to whether or not there will even be a summer reading program.. I am totally bummed about this! I hope they are still able to get it going...

  2. Oh no!! I hope they figure it out.
