Dear Noah......a BIG DAY for you!

Today we had to get up early and head to the new Orthotics place to have you fitted for orthotics...and you did great! You handled it much better this time round and you won't need the same type of orthotic anymore which is great news!

THEN we had a few other stops to make......you got to eat at McDonalds and play in their cool play area........we picked up some bargains at the local Goodwill and we passed the most gorgeous little park in another city.......that had a pool for little kids in the center! JUST a big round pool 1-3 feet deep....for little kids under 12 years of age. ALL fenced in.......AND FREE! We came home and dropped all our stuff off and then drove back so you could go swimming. The atmosphere at this park is so great. The parks in our area are absolutely gorgeous! BIG HUGE trees.....lots of shade......nice shelters.......bathrooms.......playgrounds.......clean......and then this one with a cool pool!

YOU had a ball.....and we will likely be making this trip every couple of days so you can swim! EVERY shot I took of you today you were so happy and smiling so big. Today you had a great day! You had a couple of times when you lost it for like 3 seconds and screamed to a girl to stop splashing you......I made you get out of the pool for a time out and told you if you did not want to get wet you had no business being in a SWIMMING POOL! AND besides.....you like to splash other people....so I reminded you to not do so unless they too wanted to be splashed because maybe they would also not enjoy it. You listened....took the time out and were fine afterwards. BUT as I look at the pictures tonight...I am impressed with the HUGE happiness on your face......that makes me feel good.

There were other kids in the pool and you had a ball playing with them. I purposedly tried to take shots withOUT the other children as I know some parents would not like that. SO it looks like you had the pool to yourself but you really didn't.....though it was NOT busy. A very secluded park.....almost seems slightly forgotten on the wayside......perfect for a day in the sun!

I love you Noah.....and am very proud of you!

Glad to hear your appointment went well with the orthodics. That pool looks like a lot of fun! I really like the last photo of you, you look so grown up Noah!

Dear Noah,
So glad everything went well for you and Mommy. Nice that she found this pool, is it close to Piqua or Covington? That's nice they have something like that for children, do they also have an adult to supervise? And I see you didn't have to wear a shirt. Have a great day.
Love you little man.
