Did I ever mention that Sean Astin was on my trip #1 flight from Detroit to LAX? I don’t think I did -- too caught up in the rest of the excitement of the trip to go meet who I thought would be my son. Little did I know that…
1) Sean Astin would be on my flight
2) There was a quicker way to fly (NO LAX!)
3) My son would be a daughter
4) That I’d meet some of the coolest people in the world! (Hi Sara, Stephen, Heidi & Mike!)
I have LONG loved Sean Astin. I loved Samwise Gamgee, I loved Rudy and I especially loved Mikey in the Goonies. I thought of Sean Astin’s presence on my flight as a positive sign of the excitement ahead. And WHOA! Such excitement!
Tatiana had another swimming lesson this morning. I am sad to report that this week’s outing was WORSE than last week. While we waited for class to begin she splashed around with a couple of the other girls in her class. Then when it was time for class to start, she just wanted to go back to play. Maybe she’s too young – maybe it’s too many kids. Who knows. I am going to call this week to see if I can pull her out and get some $$ back. A cousin told me over the holidays that her kids were taught here locally by a woman who has a pool in her house and does private 1 on 1 classes. I am hoping to get her info as I think Miss Fish would do MUCH better in that environment.
