We had a little swimming play date, with two of Amanda's kindergarten classmates and their families. The day started out stormy and hazy, but all that burned off for a perfect time lakeside. We made cold sandwiches and ate on the beach. The kids ventured out to the neighbors' water trampoline and played complicated water games where the rules seemed to keep changing. Ben chased after Amanda's friend, asking, "Where Thomas go?" Libby made good friends with the younger siblings.
But, mostly, all EIGHT children spent their time yelling at this silly muskrat (I think it's a muskrat) hanging out under the pontoon next door. The kids lined up on the dock, shouting at the animal and swiping a fishing net in its general direction. He (she?) just sat there.
