Umbilical Cording- Day 12. . . . .

LILLY's first bus ride was a HUGE success!! Yesterday my class had our monthly trip to the YMCA to swim. She hopped right on the bus and was not afraid at all. She even walked out on the lift as I got my kids on and off the bus. Once we started moving she went right under the seat and laid right down. She stayed under the seat until the bus stopped. I was a very proud mom! Paul was sweet enough to meet me at the Y to watch LILLY while we swam. I have followed all the rules with this umbilical cording, but I couldn't quite figure out how to hold one of my kids and swim all with LILLY attached to my waist. Kyria and I decided it would be best if someone met me there to sit with her. It was so hot in the indoor pool area so Paul was periodically take her outside for some fresh air. I think between the heat and the chlorine she needed a break every once and a while. The bus ride back to school was great too! At least we now know she can ride the bus for field trips!

Right after school we got right in the car to head the the beach! YAY! Spring break-- I thought it would never get here! LILLY and LANIE did good riding down together. There were a few times I think they got on each others nerves, but for the most part they did great! However, once we arrived at Topsail they were wild as can be!!! For the first time since I have had LILLY she truly acted like a puppy!! WOW. . . I didn't think my belt buckle could handle any more tugging. After about 15 minutes both dogs settled down some, but boy were they excited to be here.

They slept great last night. They are well rested and ready to go. I plan on sitting on the beach all day. Let's hope LILLY can settle down pretty quickly so we can both relax a little. I will update later to let you know how it goes.
