Meanwhile, we have managed to find some activities that help to keep us cool and pass the time. This past Sunday afternoon, we did this:
There's been lots of running through sprinklers in the backyard, along with some dancing thrown in by Miss Emma.Thoroughly wet and enjoying herself very much, here is fairy Annabelle and her dinosaur sidekick. Rawr.After our kitty-cat popped our last pool (a nice inflatable one), we finally went to the store and got a replacement-- one that does NOT contain air. The sprinklers are great fun, but when all is said and done, nothing is cooler or more fun than some swimming. As you can see, Emma LOVES it.Such cute swimming sisters. They could spend hours in that pool... and they sometimes do! Mommy is quite happy about this. :)
So, you see, summer is bearable after all! It's not my favorite season, but each time of year has its fun and blessings. I'm learning that, even while I look forward so much to the coming of fall.
