I can see that Ellie is stressed. But I think things are going easier. Charlie got in his swimming lessons. Now Ellie has some down time with Zoe at the pool. I think its good for them to do this. Zoe didn't fight Ellie as much in the water as Charlie did.
He's a handful. He's like a chunk of lead too. And he's all boy. Really. Rough and tough. Just this ball of energy.
School will be out within the week. And I think we are pretty settled how things are with Hannah and the neighborhood kids. They play a lot basketball in the neighbor's driveway. Sometimes, they ride their bikes, but its on our street. She doesn't go far.
I think Ellie is OK with it. And she makes extra trips. Walks, that is, to the nearby playground with Charlie and Zoe, so everybody gets their sunshine. Although, its been pretty damn cold this weekend.
So now, we, Ellie and me have to find some time together. A date. Yeah, we should have those every Friday night. We talked about it. Still hadn't happened. I hope it can. If only we could find a babysitter. Not that we are out, all that late on a Friday night. Sometimes, I'm just too tired to do anything. Its my fault.
Seriously, we need some quiet time to talk about the trip. I want it to be a happy one.
