We went to the pool this week. Every day. We’re hoping to move to the housing area that has this pool here on post (which would be SWEET, to walk to this pool every time we want to!) But for now, we’ll just have to live with driving the whopping three minutes it takes us to go a few streets down, isn’t that HORRIBLE? {giggle} I am so thankful the pool is that close, it’s gonna be a hot one this summer, I bet, and closer means easier. Easier for me with 6 kids by myself? Hea-ven! (sing that in a sing-songy tone to get the full effect)

But first, before I share the refreshing pool pictures, let me show you pictures of my oldest, who is such a social-butterfly she’s never around anymore, let alone when the camera is snapping, so I forced her in front of the lens and delayed her socialite status for 15 minutes gave her the baby so I could get her in on the photo-action, too.

Is it me or do they look like a four-headed monster like this? Ha! Not to mention, baby dude has big sissy’s hair BUT GOOD doesn’t he? 😉

And now for the pool pics – middle sissy gettin’ in on the baby brother-lovin’…

The umbrella-watery-thingy feels SO good. I often sit under it and let it pound on my back, massaging the stresses out of my shoulders..

Then there’s these fun water jet thingies my kids can’t get enough of. You sit on one and it makes the others flow faster.

Yup, just like mom, lovin’ the umbrella-thingamabob, too….

Had to attempt to snap this – the big pool behind his little body. That sun felt WONDERFUL!

Ha, my four five-year old’s crazy hair moment after I towel-dried his hair. (Oh my, he’s five. Not four, momma. Five. *sigh*)

I was really experimenting. I loved the light behind him with the shadow underneath.

My poor baby dude was cold, so I brought him out, wrapped him up, and laid him with me, but couldn’t resist taking his picture on the big chair, yet I was too afraid to walk away from him to take it, though. {giggle}

Summer is here, we’re finally almost mended here with illness at home, and of course, my husband’s vacation time is about to come to a close. This summer is going to be a long and difficult one, but for now? I’m going to enjoy the sun, enjoy the water, and enjoy my children, hoping to keep the difficult at bay a little while longer.
