Today is rather warm out, right now it's a sunny 90 degrees. While we have plenty of room in our backyard for a pool we will never have one. Pat is totally opposed to it, and truthfully we can spend our money on other things. We have actually never had a pool, though plenty of our neighbors and friends have. Our kids grew up playing in the sprinklers, and they were fine with that. Would they have loved having a pool? You bet!
As I write I can look out the window from my bedroom and see James running through the sprinklers with 'Sissy" (aka Rachel). He is having a fabulous time, as is she! Of course James has a stick in his hand, otherwise known as a sword, making it that much more enjoyable.
Oh to be two again, and be grateful with enormous excitement and enthusiasm for sprinklers!
