Is that who I think it is?

Yep!  It sure is.  Our successfully completed first grader, starting second grade on Monday and our confident swimmer.  He has been able to swim for two years, but the confidence starting to head in the right direction at the end of last summer.  And well this year, you can't keep the fish out of the water!  I am so proud of him.  The fun and summer memories have only begun for him.  Guess its time to join a pool.


I had a work trip scheduled for June 11-18th to the UK and since its quite rare to have a weekend stay (in fact, can't recall one since I have been traveling) I decided to see if Vince could tag along.  Turns out all the stars were aligned and it worked out!  Thanks to my wonderful parents willingness to watch the kids and Vince's manager being flexible to working an alternate schedule for a few days.  It was a nice week/weekend.  We saw most of London, did a little gambling, and was able to visit Stonehenge.  Anyone who says Stonehenge is just a big pile of rocks hasn't seen it.  Simply Amazing.  Beautiful.  I found myself just starring and short on words.

Can't make it to a pub- no problem.  Get it to go!
A tasty treat with cheese.  We bought two jars.
