It's a Pool, Your'e Gonna Get Wet

So here's a LITTLE THING: 
My kids have been playing outside in the pool ALL day. We ate breakfast, put on suits and have been outside since. It's finally feeling like summer here in Wisco.

That they are old enough that I don't have to hover to keep them from drowning. I have been enjoying the day sitting on the screen porch working on completing some neglected tasks. I'm thankful for my little Chromebook! I have been sipping coffee without any need to re-heat multiple times. Yes, I drink hot coffee even when it's 80 degrees outside.

I love to hear my kids playing pretend together (or rather Gwenyth tells Reuben what to say and do). A few minutes ago, they were mermaids which seems a little predictable to me, but whatever... There are some days when I desperately miss them being babies, but man... the independence of a 3 and 5 year old is certainly wonderful! Plus, I hear they only get more independent which some days makes me giddy and others scares me out of my mind!

But, let's keep it REAL: 
I spent about 20 minutes listening to my three year old scream and cry because he was in the pool and getting splashed by his sister when she slid into the water. Turns out it's really hard to convince a three year old that if you're in a pool, you're gonna have to be okay getting wet.

I ran a good half block chasing a big pink ball that was being blown away by the wind.

I have to run the net through the pool water every ten minutes to clean out the helicopters that continuously fall from our huge maple trees because of said wind. It looks like it's snowing at times!

I expect there will be a meltdown when I have to tear the three year old from the pool in order to N-A-P. 

But seriously. I couldn't ask for a better day. It's one of those days when I need a T-shirt that says "Life is Good." 

What have been your "Life is Good" days or moments been lately? Share the joy in the comments.
