The Twins Give the Pool a Try

The twins got their turn to try out the pool. At first Nolan wasn't too sure, but it didn't take long for him to figure out that he could walk all over the pool in his floatie! We had fun as a family cooling off (a little) was more like a big bath tub!

Our Little Swimming Pool

Well, we broke down and bought a little swimming pool last week. (Gotta love Big Lots and their great deals!) Hope was very anxious to get it up, so Saturday we took on the challenge. Hope is very excited to swim and thinks she will this afternoon even though it's extremely cold well water filling it!

Well, as you can see, Hope got her wish! Thanks to 90 degree weather, the pool sitting on concrete, and being right in the sun, the pool warmed up a little...well enough to get in it. Let's just say I found it quite refreshing after I got used to it! :-) Our little pool is only 10 feet wide and about 2 feet deep, but it will be great for the kids to play in and for Mommy and Daddy to cool off a little.

Getting Started...

Well, I'm going to give this blogging thing a try. I have a few friends in California that do this and they say it's easy...we'll see about that! Anyway, this week has been busy with Vacation Bible School. I have been able to help out in Hope's class which has been an adventure! Last night we had 8 preschoolers, two not quite 3 year olds, too. They keep me hopping! I think Hope's favorite part is the music. It has been fun to spend time with her and see her interact with her friends.
Our other news is that Grace has started to walk...finally!! Guy got some great shots of her taking those exciting steps. Once Nolan saw what was going on, he decided to "remember" that he knows how to do this and joined in...quite humorous!
