Reflections from the Pool


Ice cold water, children screaming, half-naked people walking around eating cheese fries. Yep, it's that time again...the community pool has officially opened. It is definitely the summertime place to be.


The older two kids love the slides and diving boards and just swimming around in the deep end. They started swim team today and came out of the water with blue lips and chattering teeth. It's a big commitment, with practice every afternoon til school's out and then every morning for an hour and a half. But they both just love the water and I love the way it structures our summer...so we're trying it again!


The twinkies are water bugs too. They have decided they are too big for the baby pool and now enjoy sending me into cardiac arrest by going as deep as they can in different directions! I am constantly wondering which one to save first. Sitting at the pool with them is not relaxing...but at least I am there with lots of other moms and the boys are getting worn out in the process.


So, slather on the sunscreen, pull out your beach towel and come for a dip sometime. The cheese fries are on me!

Wow - your kids are going to be awesome swimmers. You need pool leashes for the twinkies with water wings attached - do they make those yet?
