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:
