Sam and I visited the library a couple times. We all went to our favorite used bookstore - Under Charlies Covers - which Sam absolutely loved! The store is full of shelves 8 feet high, and the floor is covered in piles of excess books that won't fit on the shelves - it is an absolutely amazing site, and more amazingly, very organized.
Sam and I visited my friend Joann at her pool, and Sam met many of the girls I knit with there. They all coo'd over how handsome and intelligent he is. He swam until he looked like a white raisin.
Sam attended two weeks of AYSO Soccer Academy Day Camp in the Advanced Group winning a Bronze his first week, and a top score Gold his second week. His skill set improved dramatically at camp and he had a lot of fun. The camp also had a pool, so Sam was able to swim each day of camp as well (not bad for a desert in a drought!)
Later that afternoon, Josh, Sam and his Mom played a round of Putt-Putt golf. Josh took first in the Men's division, Sam took first in the under 30 division, and I handily took the women's trophy. Later that evening there was an amazing Uno tournament that lasted a solid couple of hours.
And finally, here is a picture of my very handsome son working intently on his painting. I think this is a gorgeous portrait of him, even if he isn't smiling. Jess has some fun pictures of us in the studio that I'll share as soon as I get copies.
