I invited friends to visit today. We were all going to the pool. Four kids plus my three. What a day we were going to have. Problem was, the pool was closed for a swim meet. BUMMER!
I don't think any of the kids were as disappointed as I was. They emptied the tank in the back yard and filled it up with clean, cool water. They played tag (even at 15, 16, and 17 they are playing tag!) They ate cookies and popcorn and played cards. I think they also played some basketball. I don't know all the details, as we moms went to the local antique mall and then for a smoothie at the coffee shop.
It wasn't a swim day, but it was a good day.
