Madison and I ended up at an unexpected gathering of a group of our cousins. They had so much fun and all played together perfectly.

We were all enjoying the scenery over the weekend . . . 40 feet underwater! Madison completed her confined water skills and, after an open water dive on Saturday, joined Marco and I on a deeper dive on Sunday. This dive was the final one for Marco and I, and I am proud to report that we are now . . .
PADI CERTIFIED SCUBA DIVERS!!!!!
Madison has one more skill and dive to complete and then she will join our ranks :)
We celebrated back to school (or NOT back to school) with a beach party. That's right, while everyone else was stuck in a building we, along with about a dozen other local home-schoolers, were at the beach. It was actually a shaving cream party! I know, I know, what the heck is that? That is what I thought too, until we opened our cans . . .
As the kids would say "It was EPIC!!!"
The teacher has also decided to compete in the triathlon. I, however, have joined a team so I only have to complete a 12 mile bicycle ride. The upcoming race provided the perfect excuse to purchase the bike I have been salivating over for the past six months! And I am not usually one for delayed gratification.
We are so ready! Bring it on!
