Hello and happy Monday, ladies. Another lovely day in Delaware. One of Ava's friends is coming to have lunch and play today (a boy she wants to marry--ONE of the boys, that is...). After that we're going to the pool because Ava wants to take her green bracelet swim test (she has backed out twice already). That gives a kid run of the entire pool including the water slide. Cross your fingers for her. She's got to get this done someday! I can't think of a good reward for her that doesn't cost a lot. I have a new chicken dish in the crock pot that I imagine the kids will refuse, as usual. Okay, I have to get to cleaning in preparation for our guest. Have a great week.
