Our buddies, The Metcalfes, (who just moved to Maryland) are back for a week. Fortunately for us, they have relatives in town so we will still get to see them from time to time. Extra fortunate for us - the relatives have a pool!
The water was decently cold, so the adults stayed out and ate chips & guac and fruit salad. But the boys braved it. (I made Sara's secret recipe for guac and it turned out quite well.)
Magoo had a life jacket and a noodle to keep him afloat. (Swim lessons start at the end of July.) D had cool Spiderman arm swimmies.
Here's lovely Sara and her youngest.
Have you ever wondered what would happen if The Terminator and Borat had a baby?
That wrap around life jacket was KILLING the adults. N. seemed to like it just fine, though.
IN OTHER NEWS:
Magoo loves camp! Yeah!
I'm waiting on art notes for Wink 2. Hopefully they'll come in soon - I'm looking forward to starting the illustrations. But most likely things won't pick up until fall.
I just got word that WINK is on the first grade reading list for the elementary schools in Newton, MA! Yahoo!
I'm currently working on another picture book manuscript which I hope to send to my editor in the next two weeks. And another larger writing project that may sink or swim - we'll see.
