The kidlets come home tomorrow; I’m looking forward to seeing them! I was reading a post on one of my favorite blogs, Redneck Mother, and laughed when I read the bit about “I know my mother loves me — but nothing compares to the indulgences a grandmother will allow a grandchild…I’m no longer her only daughter. I’m her grandsons’ keeper.”
Here’s Grandma’s last report:
Today was the Grand Finale Dolphin Show. Posters were seen all around the house announcing the 3pm show. We waited in eager anticipation and must say, all the careful practice certainly paid off. We were treated to the following acts: criss-cross, wave, underwater hand stand, underwater somersault (front and back), ring retrieve, laps, ring in the tube, now-you-see him-now-you-don’t, weave, dolphin dive, ball bop and butt boomer. Such diversity of skills! In spite of the windy, chilly conditions (Seattle dolphins laugh at this description), everyone had a wonderful time and the dolphin and trainer were applauded frequently. It was a great end to a great week. Tomorrow morning, trainer and dolphin will just play in the water without the pressure of another show, before heading back to their native Washington state. We will surely miss this talented duo.
I can’t wait to find out just what a “butt boomer” is…
