School is out and the Pool is open!!!!

My little blue house is conveniently located a short walk or bike ride down a paved walking path from a fantastic city pool.  My family takes full advantage... we go to the pool practically every day.

Shaylee and I today at the Pool
The pool opened this weekend for the 2012 season.  As I lay in my lounge chair and watched my kids play in the shallow end of the pool a very surreal feeling came over me.  A WHOLE, ENTIRE school year had passed since the last time I was lounging by the poolside... yet in that moment it felt like no time had passed.  It was a very strange feeling.

I am excited for this pool season.  Shaylee is already jumping off the diving board like a champ, and Will is so much taller this year, he can go much farther in without the water going over his head.   My favorite summer days are spent in a lounge chair next to my friends, chit-chatting and people watching, while my kids have fun and get some good exercise.   Summertime just wouldn't be the same without the pool!
