10.0 10.0 10.0 9.9 10.0

Four out of 5 judges agree;
a perfect underwater handstand!

Well, maybe that's just a Mother's point of view.

At my prompting and cajoling, Steve acquiesced and we bought an above ground pool a few weeks ago. I know, I know, it's not fancy like an in-ground pool; maybe it's even a little redneck. But you know what? We are LOVING it! My computer-lovin', DS playin', couch potatoein' children are getting exercise, doing something they love to do. Swim! And they are really good at it.

We have had the best fun together. We all four run around the same direction in the pool to create a whirlpool, which is actually just a semi-strong current. We play, we laugh, we all act silly and we are moving our bodies at the same time. And best of all, it's right in our back yard. I don't know how many times over the 11 years we have lived here, I have driven past our neighborhood pool and longed for a night time swim. Now I can do it any time I want.

Yea, it's not a fancy in-ground pool like most of the neighbors have... but it's ours, and it's in our own back yard.

How wonderful to have your own pool and be able to use it any time you want! Glad to hear you all are loving it.

Webkinz Visit Sleepyhead

Chloe and I made this slide show one day when Spike was fast asleep. He didn't move a muscle as she placed her Webkinz, one after another, on top of him. Sorry it's a bit slow, it's the fastest I could get it to go. Enjoy!
