And We’ll Be Swingin’…

“Yeah, and we'll be swingin, yes, we'll be swinging”

…and so goes the song lyrics by country music artist, John Anderson.

Appropriate for tonight’s blog as this afternoon marked the first time that little Luke got to experience the “swing”.  Mary and Benjamin have been waiting for this day.  They have become quite proficient at operating this baby mechanism using dolls and stuffed animals for practice.

Luke seemed to really love the swing, which of course, is a good thing!  I see a future with lots of clean hardwood floors in it!

Tomorrow is all about Mary Catherine.  It is hard for me to believe that my firstborn, in vitro miracle will turn six years old.  She is such a delight to her father and me.  We aren’t having a big shin dig this year, but we do have a few “Aunties” dropping by for her birthday.  Mama promised her a “friends” birthday party this year, so we are going to wait until the school year starts in a couple of weeks.  Can’t wait to share photos with you of “big sister”!

Hope your week has gotten off to a great start!
