wet swim class

This morning at Natalie's swim class, I let boots bring his blanky along. He was feeling extra tired and needy and I thought I would be SOO nice. We sat there with the overcast sky for 15 minutes, only to have it start POURING rain. I mean SLAMMING down. They continued on with class and all the parents huddled under the canopied area of the patio. This is meant to block sun, not rain. We got wet. REALLY wet. Finally 5 minutes later they called it and cancelled. By that time, not only was Natalie soaked from her lessons, but me and Boots were drenched, like we had been thrown into the pool! It is a good thing I didn't have anywhere to go after and that I didn't get ready AT all before hand!
As for her progress, we are getting there. She still wont put her head under for her teachers, but she will at our pool of course. Were working on that!

Last night was one of our Girls Camp activities. Our girls are so fun and had a big party and sleepover. We tried to tie dye shirts, which was super unsuccessful! But fudge bars were a success!! After he downed this puppy, he managed to biff it off of a bench and pull it right down onto his eye. He has a full on shiner. I think this is his first! Way to go little dude!
Love these girls...and that little man!
Ok now an opinion. I am making a new table runner and my kitchen is black with red accents. I thought it might be kinda fun to bring in some other color... which fabric do YOU like?

I like the black and white fabric on the left...

And hey, I was at a camp meeting the other night and one of Hillary's sis-in-laws was there and said they had good success with tie dye. You might have her ask how they did it. I'm clueless. :)

I agree with the black and white.

As for tie-dye, we did them a few years ago for camp and had some success using those cheap ketchup and mustard bottles filled with the dye. Then you just squirt the dye on the rubber-banded parts you want that color while holding the shirt over a bucket. Does that make sense?

Happy shirt/house decorating. The bathroom looks cute!

I vote black and white. and yay for big black eyes! Sammy got half of one this week, but it was sister-caused so I don't think it fully counts as his first.

I like the black and white also, but I'm sure anything you make will be really cute. Can you come decorate my house for me? I love to look at magazines and watch shows, but when it comes to decorating my own house I haven't got a clue.
