The Pool is Open!

Summer is here!

The pool is open!

You know how I love the pool. This year I wasn’t very excited about it. The kids could sense it. Stephen even asked why.

I told him it was because I was fat. He assured me I was no fatter this year than last year. And strangely, it didn’t even hurt my feelings. I needed to know that I was just the same as last year. Comforting in a strange way.

It opened Monday and we have been there since.

I have taken my Kindle in a baggie. They have waterproof cases for it, but the reviews I read said that a baggie worked just as good. And I can get a whole box of those for under $2. The case costs like $40.

And yes, I am that cheap. The baggies won!

I was a little worried that I wouldn’t be able to read it at the pool, but I’m so happy to say that I can!!! This is going to be a great summer!!!

I didn’t tell you that Samuel made the all-star team again this year. This is his 5th year in a row to make it. It’s hot, but we love it and he does too. Congrats Sam! I’m proud of you!!

So, what are you doing this summer? Pool? Baseball? Staying inside?

Celebrating and decorating with purpose is my favorite thing to do. When I am not filling a tree with ornaments or throwing a birthday party for my golden doodle, I am being mom to a super cool tween son, the wife to a fine blue eyed man and selling real estate. I call northeast Arkansas home and when I am not loving on my people or celebrating in our space, I am using words to express myself here or on my podcast. Be sure to follow me! I am the co-author of a blog called Life with My Sister and have a podcast called Abby As-Is. You can also follow me on Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest and YouTube.
