Re: The Grandkids...

Finished with the swimming lessons yesterday. Both moved up to the next level. Next year we're going to get the youngest in - she'll be 3 1/2. We've been going to the public pool about once every couple of weeks. That little girl is like a fish - no fear of the water at all. The oldest gson bowed out this year - he made it to swim team last year and wanted to play soccer instead.

Re: The Grandkids...

He wants to play soccer instead of swim... in the summer. Hmmm. It must not be as hot where you are as it is where I am.

Re: The Grandkids...

He made "Swim Team" (Level 5) last year. All they do is swim laps for 45 minutes. The other two passed level 3 last Thursday. It's kind of neat watching their progression every year. Next year, if mom allows it, we'll be enrolling the youngest into swim lessons (she'll be three). We've been taking her (and the other gkids) swimming about once a week. She's not afraid of the water and she knows when to hold her breath.

Re: The Grandkids...

Taking my 10 yr old Gson home yesterday evening after watching a Football game... He usually changes the radio station. However, there was a song playing that I like... Gotye - Someone that I used to know...

Gpa - I like that song... (Tuning it back to that station..)
GSon - Why does every adult I know like that song?
Gpa - Because every adult can relate to it in one way or another.
GSon - (His reaction was a smile)

After the song was over I turned it to his favorite radio station...

Re: The Grandkids...

Gdau is almost four now... Talks... a lot. Everyday when I get home she asks me: "Gpa - Pony Party?" I comply almost every single time.

She's getting quite creative with the "pony talk" now. She get into a regular dialog with me on "how're you doing, 'what are you doing,' where are we going'" thing.

Went home for lunch today. She told me a story about her and her dad walking the dog and meeting another person along the way. She pet the dog, got it's name... "swimming pool" (original) and told me about her and her brother sneaking into the pantry and getting chocolate bars.

Gotta love 'em.

Re: The Grandkids...

Cute age! DD used to tell me stories at that age about her day as well. She was also quite open about embellishing them for my better entertainment!

Re: The Grandkids...

Tried to teach her how to play 4-square yesterday... Set up a chalk line on the driveway, had Gma, GSon, her and myself. Using this huge ball - very light weight... GSon bounces the ball to her square, she catches it, runs to the end of the driveway and yells: "TOUCHDOWN!"

Awesome! Gotta love it!

Re: The Grandkids...

Called home during lunch today. GDau wanted to talk to GPa.

GDau: Gpa, you come home and we have a "Pony Party?"
GPa: I can't sweetie, GPa's at work.

<CLICK>

She learns fast...
