Water Babies

Thanks for the pool Bumma!

We've been spending a good portion of each day splashing around in the pool. This has been one of the hottest summers we've had out here that I remember. Each day after Oblio gets up from his nap & I've picked up Mozers from school the kids put on their swimsuits. Then we jump in & swim until it's time for dinner. Sometimes they swim all morning too. Sometimes I get to join them if I'm not working on projects. No matter what I have made a promise to myself to join them at least once a day in the pool. Not always because I want to but I know it's the right thing to do. I know this is the last summer they will be "this age"  &I don't want to miss a minute of it.

Every once in a while Dean gets home early enough to join us. It's so much more fun when daddy is in the pool. He can throw the girls higher & does bigger cannonballs.

Sloan & Zoe are swimming around like little mermaids! This year Aris has taught herself to swim too! She loves being able to keep up with her sisters. Even Oblio is getting better at swimming. I know by next year he will be swimming around with the girls. 

When it's time for me to get out of the pool to fix dinner, the girls stay in until their fingers look like raisins. When bedtime rolls around they are asleep before their heads hit the pillow. I'm loving these last few weeks of summer. The next few weeks will be filled with as many fun water adventures as we can have.

I know this is silly but I couldn't help myself! Lol! What have you been doing to stay cool this summer?
