is it summer yet?


Oh heaven's yes.  Yes it is.  We have momentarily traded storms and rain for heat and humidity.  Dude.  I hate humidity.  There is nothing cool about walking out of the house and having your hair plastered to your face with sweat immediately.  Is it fall yet?


Luckily we have a fabulous pool membership with lifeguards that spoil my kids to pieces.  Pretty sure they would live there.  The guard above was on her break and the first thing she asked was if Parker wanted to go off the diving board with her.  She caught him about 7,234 times before she had to go back to her chair.  I suppose cocktails in a lounge chair isn't such a bad way to spend these hot days.  Maybe some crafting this week.  Maybe. 

If you are interested, the summer ballet intensive recital was last Friday and I have posted scads of pics on flickr (click on badge at right).

Yes relaxing in a lounge chair is the best way to enjoy the summer! Are you a book lover? I have a great one for you while the kids swim. Peace Like a River by Leif Enger was wonderful.

yay for summer!
I hope it isn't so humid this week for you... if it is... just jump in that pool!

Gotta love Midwest Summers. I especially enjoy taking a shower at 8 am, then attempting to apply makeup when humidity is 100%. You know what I am talking about I bet. You're sweating so profusely the makeup melts right off your face. Sexy!

Ah yes, the lovely humidity. I'll take giant spiders over humidity any day. Especially when the spiders aren't around all the time, which is the deal I have.

It looks like the kids have figured out how to stay comfortable. I think the pool is the best place to be. I remember my brother and I used to practically spend the summer in the pool (back in the humidity-laden Boston area). It's too bad adults can't do that too.
