Summer is here and we're getting in the groove, despite it being my least favorite season. Children love it, so I will for them!
Walked to the pool with the 3 kids plus 2 of Carter's friends.
Debut of the new suit. It cost more than all of mine put together. Totally worth it. It has a tutu built in, people!
Jack enjoyed the pool at first.
Then, his quirky personality took over and he became hysterical because there were leaves in the pool. "LEAVES!!!!! GET IT, DADDY!!!!!!" Oh, this sweet child of mine keeps me guessing. Blake must have cleaned out the filter 10 times in an effort to retrieve more leaves. We're thrilled to know he has a passion for his future career as a pool cleaner (obviously), but do believe he's starting a bit young.
He's pictured with a ziploc bag above for a reason. After working diligently to fish out leaves and make a neat pile of them on the side of the pool, little Lainey would come behind him, pick them up and throw them in the water.
Then, she'd stand there with her angel baby face and say, "Oh, no, Schjack! Sa-wee!" Such a little stinker!
The two of them cleaning out the filter...isn't this every child's dream for summer fun?
And, that completes our first trip to the pool. Lainey touched the water only by lying on her belly and putting the tips of her fingers in. Jack spent most of his time skimming the surface for leaves. Carter was unseen.....off with friends and had a grand time. Thrilled for him....he couldn't love the season more. Jack and Lainey? I have a feeling they will make this our most challenging summer yet.
My mind fogs up just thinking about how he'll clean the beach in California. Seaweed! Ocean debris! Shells! Sand!
Note to self: make appointment to request anti-anxiety meds. Lots of them!
