we have had a beautiful christmas, and hope you have too.
noah has been asking daily for weeks to go swimming in the back yard. we, very wisely of course, explained carefully why that wouldn't work. he would seem to understand, but then start asking again the next day. so brock staged this in an effort to help him understand. it didn't work. he was sure that after we got the water in the pool, it would warm him up - he just needed to go in the house to get warm clothes on until then. the hose couldn't be used to fill the pool, as everything was frozen up, so he still isn't a believer in the impossibility of the situation. but he did settle for swimming in the bathtub yesterday.
