We've got all the signs of spring starting early except for a prediction of snow on Saturday. Just in time for our Sasha's 8th Birthday. I decided not to do a home party this year- this weather is just too random and unpredictable. Furthermore I wasn't prepared to have ten 8 & 9 year olds running a muck in my house. With a recent play-date involving one boy helping himself to matches that we have 'safely' hidden in a cupboard, I'm not willing to risk what would happen if 10 inquisitive and mischievious boys showed up. Oi. So yes, a swimming party it will be. Not nearly as creative as past years, but oh well. If it does end up snowing I'll be so relieved we made other plans!
