Well, I must say, before my family moved here to Albuquerque, New Mexico last year, I NEVER thought we would be having an outdoor, swimming play date on September 20th! After all, back in Michigan by that date, we were generally breaking out the hoodies and such!
But THIS year, we spent the day (on September 20th!) with another home-schooling family from our church, who had invited the boys and me to their new home. We ate lunch outdoors on the patio, and the kids spent the day swimming in their (unheated!) pool. On September 20th!
As you can see, the kids had a WONDERFUL time, and they (right along with me!) really, really like the milder weather here! 🙂
Here are “The Artist”, “The Puzzler” & “Mr. Loquacious” . . .

All of the kiddos had a great time in and around the pool . . .
Here is “The Batman”, riding the whale!
“The Puzzler” . . . “in? or Out? That is the question!
Apparently the answer was “out” for a bit, but the others were all in, and having a blast!
I had planned to swim as well, but had cut my finger pretty badly the night before. We thought it best for me to stay out of the pool that day. 😦
What a great time we all had, and what a benefit of home-schooling, that once again, we get to work school in around life, instead of the other way around! 🙂
