not necessarily together
none of our pets swim
but one of our children does
John David has had many many swim meets over the past few months
between club swim and school swim
he has been working hard
last weekend was his last chance to get times for Southeastern
he made all his times but 2
but the 2 he did not qualify for he was close enough to get bonus cuts
(I know too much swim lingo)
he totally rocked (my kids are rolling their eyes…think I am so lame using the word rocked)
the 500 free…taking his best time of 5:24 to 5:10
yeah he rocked it:)
he has his final short course meet next weekend
I CANNOT WAIT
I love getting time by myself with him
the swim meet is secondary
(Hank and Carly are holding the home fort down)
honestly I wish I had a weekend with each of my kiddos by themselves!!
I have started mourning losing my Odie
He is in heart failure
but you would never know it except for his cough
every single time he coughs I get sad
Janie put her dress on him
I was cleaning a cabinet out this week and found this pic of Odie as a puppy with 3 year old John David….Oh my heart!!! Are they not so so cute??? We lost both of our dogs while I was pregnant with John David and did not get another one until Odie…..3 whole years without a dog!
I can’t even imagine going a week now:)
but then again I have 7 children now so what is one more dog?????
I have said for years that Odie is the sweetest most annoying dog ever haha
he will eat anything that is not moving and then some
I can tell he does not feel himself since he is not constantly looking for something to eat
I’m relieved and sad all at the same time….
while I won’t miss his scavengering (I know…not a word but that is Odie)
I sure will miss his sweet eyes and demeanor
I hope he defies the odds and lives for another year or so!!
Anyone close to me knows that I am always looking for the funny in a situation
when he coughs sometimes, it makes him poot, which scares him
he runs off like some one is after him
Then there are the other 2 crazies
Ralph was hiding from Goldbug
he kept swishing his tail
every time Goldbug would walk away Ralph would peek around the curtains:)
