Cooling Off!

It is plain ol' hot here. The kids go out to play for the first time around seven in the evening-- unless you count yesterday when they played four square in the garage because the van was backed out so Caleb could wash it. To break the monotony of our summer days, I took the kids swimming down at the clubhouse this afternoon. I was preoccupied with Dennis' eye and him not getting it wet in the water or exposing it to the sun too much, but other than that it was fun.

We ate Otterpops and apple slices-- and just hung out. A family next to us dropped their box of crackers and didn't bother to pick up the ones that spilled out on the ground-- but don't worry Dennis took care of it! When I wasn't looking he picked up all the crackers and was eating them.

Alex enjoyed putting his feet in the water. Hopefully one day, he will be a swimmer!

Tomorrow we are going swimming again! This time, some friends will be joining us.
