Day One Hundred Eighty Eight 2011
My grandpeeps, Elijah and Shelby, at Echo Valley Swimming Pool this afternoon. They have such a brief time to enjoy the summer before school starts again. School has been out for several weeks now (in fact, school will begin again in about two weeks) and I had not taken them swimming. It was a spur of the moment kind of thing. I knew there was a chance of a thunderstorm this afternoon, but it was a really nice day for the pool--hot, but not too hot with some clouds to keep the sun from scorching us. We got there at two and enjoyed about an hour and a half of cool splashing before one of the lifeguards yelled, "I hear thunder! Everybody out of the pool!" Then it started to pour rain. So that was that. We had some fun while it lasted. Maybe we'll try again next week. And if we don't make it to the pool again, we do have the beach to look forward to before our summer is just a memory.
