We've been at the pool...where else?!

It is the end of week two of summer vacation and we have been at the pool.  A lot.

And that's not necessarily a bad thing.  The kids are on the swim team so we are there for practice and then we stay to play.   The pool is just a few minutes from the house. Pool dues have been paid.  Swim team fees have been paid.  So I like the kids to swim their little hearts out until they are wrinkled and pink.  

It won't be long...probably mid-July...until the kids are totally over the pool and then they expect to start going places.  Places that cost extra money...like bowling, the movies, Chuck E. Cheese.  Places that I have to drive to...like the Children's Museum, the Nature Science Center, Chuck E. Cheese.  Places that are loud...like Chuck E. Cheese, Chuck E. Cheese and Chuck E. Cheese. 

There comes a point in the stay-at-home mom's summer that even Chuck E. Cheese sounds like a great place to go.  Thankfully, we haven't gotten to that point yet. 

So to the pool we go!

Here are some pictures of the swim meet from this past week:
