Yesterday we were able to go to a new pool with some old friends, Mandy and Malina. Mandy and I taught together years ago, before I had kids. Her daughter is one year younger than Faith and they all play together very well.
We haven’t been to the pool a lot this summer. For some reason the kids don’t really want to go (and I don’t want to force them because I don’t want to go either). I think they are just getting bored with it and it has been very hot outside this summer. The last few summers have been quite nice but this one is just hot, humid and over ninety degrees everyday. Thankfully, we had a beautifully mild day and were with friends.
Out of everyone, I think the boys had the best time. There was a water slide there that they went down over and over again. I loved watching them play together. Wilson didn’t want to leave because he was having so much fun sliding with Miller. I think that miller is finally old enough to play the rougher games that wilson likes to play without getting hurt. It makes me happy to see them play as friends.
Of course the girls had an equally enjoyable time as well. We look forward to going over there again in a few weeks.
