The weather is warming but still not as hot as we'd expect for this time of year. Still, though, we feel the need to be outside enjoying the sunshine and water.
Good Neighbor D taught us a trick to heating up our kiddie pool. We fill it and then place a large black garbage sack directly on top of the water. Within 3 hours it turns a balmy 88 degrees.
The kids enjoy just sitting in the water playing.
Then as it cools off they splash until the water is nearly gone. (Or at least T Rex splashes.)
I like just sitting outside, enjoying the view, soaking up some rays, and watching the kids have a wonderful time. After all, isn't that what almost summer days are about?
Oh, I start my new job tomorrow. Send me your good thoughts and wishes. I am so excited but also a little nervous. So much to learn but as I met with my new employers and colleagues this week I am overwhelmed by the support I feel in getting off to a good start. Don't worry, though, still plenty of time to hang with the kids and T Rex Dad, but also keep those crafting projects going.
