We decided to go swimming in Keokuk, Iowa. It's funny. You drive for 18 hours to visit a new state, and what do the kids want to do? Go swimming! When I told the kids to go suit up for the pool, this is what I heard: "Mom, I can't find my suit," Mom, I can't find my swimsuit anywhere," "Mom, can I swim in some regular shorts?"
Suddenly, I remembered where their swimsuits were; in the dryer in Lexington, Nebraska. Thank goodness it was my fault. I had left them there. I was the one that was supposed to remember to get them out of the dryer and put them back in the suitcase. I couldn't yell at anyone. Instead, I loaded up all the kids in the car and headed to WalMart. New suits all around.
