Summer Snapshot 4- The Pool

The younger kids pooled their money- literally. Our yard is now graced with a 4' x 17' pool. It has been up and running for 2 weeks, providing hours of entertainment. Sunday found all 6 of us splish splashing till dusk, the sliver of a moon over the barn, bats and swallows swooping, warm under the water and chilly out.
It's a bit surreal, actually, to have a pool on our property. Ours is an almost 90 year old Territories homestead. Think prarie, wild, and sheds in various life stages. And then there's the crisp, clean blue pool.
Twice this week, KB has gotten home from work, changed and taken a dip with the notsolittles. Cool refreshment in a week whose days have blazed near 100.
Good times.
