hey, summer…

… i’m kind of liking you this year (gasp times 10)!!  it is indeed stinkin’ hot but when you have a pool it’s not so bad.  it keeps little boys happy and night swimming has to be one of my favorite things.  i also keep having flashbacks to this past winter when we visited my parents.  it wasn’t even that cold, but omar and i turned into weepy babies when our skin started cracking and i remember telling myself i wouldn’t complain so much when the temps hit 90.  just trying to keep my word.

and warm weather + pool + active boys = falling asleep really fast even if it is still light out.

and when it is still light out after they’re in bed, i don’t trip over little boy toys as easily.  specifically mr. potato head parts.  over the past few days i noticed that i kept coming across random arms and noses after bedtime in places that i thought we’re picked up only a few minutes before.  last night i figured it all out.  right before bed, elisha finds the eyes and tongue of mr. potato head and places them outside his door on the facing wall.  i watched him do this last night and as he trotted back to his bed he said, “i don’t like those things…”  fair enough.

  1. yikes I’m jealous of that pool! night swimming! arg. I am soooo missing on some sweet parts of summer!

    so cute about the Mr. Potato Head parts!

  2. I can see how a pool would make all this heat more bearable! Matt’s been asking to get one of those large, adult-size blow up pools for our back yard. It makes my short list of things I swore I’d never have in my yard…but as the summer wears on, he’s wearing me down!
