Jim returned to work this week – a big change for everyone! It was a sad transition for all of us because we have been having such a wonderful and special time together as a family. Amy is still adjusting to running the show on her own during the day – the biggest challenge being that Zander is accustomed to being held frequently, and at ~28 pounds is too heavy for Amy to carry for more than a few minutes at a time! Jim had been doing most of the carrying (ask him how his back is feeling), so Amy has some big (and strong) shoes to fill.
Tuesday marked another first for Zander – first time swimming! Jodi and her girls (who first visited us a week ago Monday) returned for a play date. Here is the crew (including Aunt Heather and Cousins Luke and Brady) at our place before hitting the pool.
