our rental that we are living at has a pool and of course the kids love, love it. we spent lots of time here this summer. margo tripped on the sidewalk outside of our place and had to get stitches, thirteen to be exact. so she spent a few weeks outside the pool just lounging in the chairs beside me. she was a good sport about it, mostly since she's pretty content to be by my side and because she rarely leaves the steps of the pool anyways. i love that we will have the memories of this "summer house" as the kids call it. there are tons of kids around and the kids couldn't be happier. it will end up being our fall and winter and maybe even spring house but i don't think they'll mind a bit.
