Great memories! School has already started here, and I'm still not sure I have what it takes to get to that end-of-summer finish line.


Although it's a lot of maintenance, getting a pool was one of the best investments we made for Emma's childhood. Summers are so much better because of it, and I think it's absolutely the best summer entertainment for kids. Now that she's a bit older, I don't have to be in the pool the whole time, which makes the whole thing even more relaxing.

We love our pool, but I always thought it would be cool to join a pool club just once...because I read about it in a Judy Blume book, of course!
It's funny how I grew up a lake girl, but I became a pool lady.


I really don't know how you did it?! Four kids of varying ages at the pool by yourself?! I sometimes have difficulty with one.

A great picture to wind up the summer!

What wonderful and sweet memories! Your weekend sounds just perfect too; enjoy your time with the Mr.


I had a lot of years with a club membership - we did swim lessons in the mornings and then went back for most afternoons, too. I agree that it was a golden time and I was lucky to have had it with the kids.


There's no way you're going to be wearing boots and tights in six weeks, well, maybe with a sleeveless shirt, but it's a nice thought. Maybe around December-January. Ha!

Happy First Week of School! :-)


I don't know why it is, but I never before pictured you taking kids to the club pool--and twice a day, no less. It all is just lovely, like a program I'd be happy to watch on tv. Life adventures played out with the backdrop of a pool


Hi there! This post couldn't be written any better! Reading through this post reminds me of my previous roommate! He constantly kept preaching about this. I'll send this post to him. Pretty sure he'll have a great read. I appreciate you for sharing!
