Today was another marathon day for Ted. Sam was up at 5:15 and when Paul put him back in his room, he screamed the house down, which woke up Ted. *sigh* We went to Jack's pool to swim at 10:30, then on to swim lessons from 12:30-2. Paul swam with Mae (good Hokey-Pokey-ing, Paul!) and then took Mae and Sam home to nap. Ted and I went to Alex's to hang out til TaeKwonDo. They spent the class preparing for testing, which is a week from today. Ted got a little report that said PERMISSION TO TEST on it and the "Approved" box checked (there was also a "Recommended" box...I guess if the teacher isn't sure the student is ready, he can still test and the judges decide.) The judges are 2 instructors from this school and one from somewhere else official, so I think this is how the ranks stay the same throughout the country. Ted's psyched. He was well behaved today (I think out of exhaustion). We had a quiet evening and an early bedtime, after finishing up another Magic Treehouse Book. Here are pics of Ted with Alex on the left and Jack on the right, and Mae looking like a rock star in her shades. It was chilly today but all the kids swam. Crazy kids.
