This past weekend the girls, our smallest boy and I ventured out to a swim meet in Rochester, Minnesota. Our oldest girl was swimming in a regional meet and was so excited. My husband and our oldest boy stayed behind to be delegates at a Republican convention. Technically, I think they both loved having an entire weekend to bond and do the "manly things"...or whatever it is that boys do.
We left on Friday and came back exhausted on Sunday. Our oldest girl came down with a cold during the weekend but swam her heart out during the meet. Of course, by the time Sunday night rolled around and we pulled into the driveway it was all but over for our family. You see, when one person gets a cold...we all get it. Ugh!
