Weekends can be tiring

I think the picture of Jacob says it all. We had the kids in bed at 7:45 tonight and they were both asleep before 8:00. They swam almost 5 hours yesterday and at least 2 today.
Swimming constituted a lot of the weekend, but not all. Yesterday we started the day with a baseball game at 8:45 a.m. John had a men's breakfast at church at 7:30, so he and Joshua went to that while Jacob and I headed to the ball field. Luckily the breakfast didn't last long and John made it to the game before the first inning was over. The game ended with a tie and we proceeded home to get the fire going. It's kind of a Saturday thing.
The fire was slow to start, but adding all they dry wood from where we are ripping out the deck helped.
By evening it was nothing but a pile of smouldering ashes. Today John spent time redoing some of the plumbing for the pool and our gutters. Once it is all done we can dig trenches to bury the lines. It looks a little rough right now, but we have big plans for the landscaping around the pool. It is going to be a long process with lots of hard work, but I am so excited about where things are headed. Stay tuned.
