Rough week with a wonderful finale.

We had kind of a rough week around here, the shop was broken into twice two different nights by the same guys and we lost a ton of money in inventory.  Since then not only have we beefed up the security but we have hired some additional employees that just sit in the parking lot over night.  Apparently in this business you must spend a ton of money to keep from having criminals steal it.  **Sigh** was the general mood around the house.  Then on Saturday we took Austin to her first swimming lessons, I can assure you that I could not have been more excited and then it ended up in a near epic fail as she cried and screamed most of the time.  They are private lessons so the instructor walked up to me as I am holding a hot mess of a 3 year old and just grabbed her out of my hands and walked into the pool with her.  It was embarrassing on all levels but after class the teacher came up to us and said please keep coming it will get easier I promise.  So we have another class this week, although Joe will be at softball so at least I will be embarrassed by myself if things go badly again.  Sunday was much better since we decided to go to the lake and go fishing.  It was a blast and one of the families that Joe plays softball with came down with us and tied their boat up to ours in the cove so we could all hang out.  I guess the one true tell to the fact that we had a long's my job to pack lunch for everyone and when we got down there I was unpacking the cooler to make sandwiches and looked up at Nate and said whelp looks like I forgot plates, silverware and napkins.  We both kind of chuckled.  Then I looked up laughing and said and apparently the lunch meat and cheese.  Nate lost it at this point.  So we all ate potato salad sandwiches...not so bad trust me.

So sorry about the break-ins!! That's awful! Maybe you'll catch someone right in the act with your new employees keeping guard!

I think Austin will end up loving swimming lessons. I should check and see how much local lessons during the winter would be. It's so fun to be a kid...once it's not scary anymore. :o)
