pool before school.

when i tell people that we go swimming before school almost every day they think we're nuts.

but imagine the inherent willingness to get out of bed if the pool is your first stop of the day. then imagine getting ready for school, wide awake, and even hurrying because you've worked up an appetite and you know there are egg salad sandwiches in the car.

it's magic.

fire hose.

a series of car rides, swimming trips, celebrations, routines, gifts, surprises, hellos, goodbyes, forts, lost teeth, snuggles, games, jokes, laughs, and to-do-lists accomplished.

lessons are being learned here. memories are being made here. kids get sick and well again. the house gets messy and cleaned again.

trying to capture it all is like trying to hold on to all of the water coming out of a fire hose.

which is why i'm throwing a bunch of pictures at you right now... no explanations... just the few moments that i grabbed up in the blast...
