Fun Times

24 Jan


We have so much fun together.  Yesterday you went skiing for the first time.  Not bad for two and a half!  Granted it was only for about 90 seconds total, but you did it!  Then we went to play on the playground at Hunt Hollow.  Your Uncle Will gave you your first lesson.  You also swam for the first time this week!  You have been in the pool and lake quite a few times already, but this was the first time you took your feet off the bottom willfully.  You were wearing only a bubble and wiggled around.  Nice job!  You squealed in delight.  Your thrilled voice echoed throughout the entire pool at the Canandaigua YMCA.  Tonight you chased daddy and I around the lake house dining room – kitchen – living room.  You think it is the best game ever.  Then at bed time I asked you to give me a kiss goodnight and you leaned over and stuck your tongue out at me!  I broke away just in time and we laughed and laughed.  Daddy laughed too.  I thought I better write that one down to tease you when you become a teenager.  It is wonderful to have you as a source of joy in our lives.

If you are an adult read this part: (It is especially great to have your joy in the house as we wait, and wait, and wait, and wait some more for contractors to work on finishing our house in Canandaigua.  We have been pretty discouraged with Key Homes this week as their scheduled completion date came and went without any explanation from them about their lateness.  The bank is now threatening to charge us an extra $2K if our builder doesn’t meet their deadline!  Cullen, if you are reading this as an adult – make sure you read contracts you sign.  Don’t trust what any for profit company salesperson tells you verbatim.)
