It's been a pool party summer. Three weeks in a row, we had a pool based birthday party to go to. First, there was Harold's that we hosted at AVAC (Almaden Valley Athletic Club), then there was his friend from school, Deeksha, who had hers at Waterworks Aquatics San Jose on South Bascom. Then this past weekend, we went to a friend's place in Mt View; they just had a pool installed in their backyard, and it was full of kids, the entire time.
Back in May, we became members of AVAC for the pool. We've also been going to AVAC to swim for the past few Sunday afternoons, after we were finished with activities of the day. it's a good way to unwind, the kids love it (they love any pool), and AVAC mandates an adult swim for 15 minutes before the top of every hour. That way, I get a few laps in.
Today is the second to the last day of Kindergarten for Harold. Bittersweet: Nice to see him moving on, developing, growing and all that good stuff. But at the same time, where is my Harwood Hills preschooler? (Answer: Long gone.)
Mama Rita was down sick with a tummy bug this morning, so I went to school to witness the kinder field party. What a blast it was! Not even 9AM and they had water balloon toss, bubbles, picture painting, face painting and more. Only in kindergarten can you have a party start that early and everyone has fun. To only be again.
Here are a few pics from the grand gala...
When I got there, Harold had finished up a painting and needed help hanging it up to dry.
And now he's readying for a water balloon fight!
He's got a bit of a mean look in his eye, doesn't he?!?
And now, he's up against the Pro's! Ms. Peterson!
She got him!
