So we have a pool! It’s not perfect and it’s cold but it holds water and we went swimming in it! So apparently getting the whole thing level is kinda important in the whole process of pool-building. The liner is all wrinkled where we don’t have the liner adjusted just right, we have a “deep-end” about two inches deeper than the other because the sand wasn’t level, the one side of the pool is s-shaped because the beams are aligned right and the pool water is lopsided because one side of the pool is higher on the ground than the other. Oh well. I’m just glad we haven’t had a flood in our back yard yet.
We got in Sunday when it was about a foot full and the girls had a BLAST. Lexi carried the hose around, squirting everyone. She went under a couple times thinking it was like the bath tub where she could lay down in it. She coughed it up and kept on going. Emma had fun as well, running around with me trying to get away from Lexi. Yesterday we had both families over for Memorial Day, mine for lunch and his for dinner. It had 2-3 feet then and Lexi was deliriously happy in the pool and Emma as well. Emma can swim around with her swimmies and Lexi sure tries. Lexi jumps and floats and everything else that says she is not one bit scared of the water. Mom was pretty much shocked at how well she did. I think she is a little fishy made for water. We had to beg her to get out and I think she’d go back in in a heartbeat.
The water has been off and on since Saturday night and we still haven’t gotten it full. But last night it got up to the bottom of the skimmer line where Scott needs to put the skimmer in so it’s on hold for now as he is working today.
Other than that, this past Friday we went out to eat at Longhorn with D&D. Fun as always. I wish we could do more stuff with them. Saturday morning I headed to the gym and cleaned inside a little before heading outside to help with the pool for the rest of the day. Sunday was church and pool. And I already mentioned yesterday. So here we are at Tuesday.
I leave for youth camp on Monday. I need to study the bible study lessons. My printer is out of ink so it has held me back a little. Not sure if the girls are all ready for that. And really I’m starting to remember that although youth camp was fun, it was a lot of work too trying to keep up with everyone and being in the hot sun all the time. They keep you so busy, you barely have time to think. I would like a break from work though. I am SO busy. Which is why I have got to get off here and get started!
