it's hot.
it's 7:30 and it's 97* degrees.
i'm not complaining.
but it is kind of hot.
i ate carrots for dinner cuz it's too hot to cook.
i should probably turn the air on.

We went to the pool again today. Jake is still having a tough time. I don't blame the kid for being cold, but it's just so frustrating to see him sulk and whine. He would hardly get in the baby pool which is only a foot deep and was warm today. It's like each time we go we have to start all over again. See, he's really been getting more confident. He'll jump in the hot tub--no problem. Doggie paddle-he's got it. He knows when to hold his breath, he knows when to blow out. But he can't stand to be cold. Of all people I should understand. I hate to be cold. I should probably just lay off him. Finally after an hour of sulking in a lawn chair he says "mommy! I wanna go home...IT'S HOT!!" Well duh! it's only 90* degrees at 11:30am. And DUH!!! Get in the pool! That's what you do when it's hot. So he got in. And had fun. And didn't want to go home. Go figure.
I got him a little kick board at Target. It's perfect. He thinks he's surfing. :D Tomorrow, my Dad and Debbie are coming and they want to take the kids to the pool. I'm hoping Jake will just get right in and show them his tricks.
Megan, on the other hand, absolutely loves the water. Could care less if it's cold. She knows the routine now and brings me the beach bag when she wants to go to the pool. When we get there she practically jumps in without fear. She even learned how to use Jake's kick board. I guess I've got to get her one now too.
Any way...I've got a huge mess to clean up before tomorrow so I better be off.
Oh! Go check this out...we have baby turkeys!

That's good he got in the pool, bet the kids like watching all the little turkeys run around in their pen.

can't believe how hot it is!! but yeah for the pool :)
jack is the same way about being cold...and yes the whining at the pool - not fun. Hopefully as you go more he will get better - plus I'm sure it is kind of the age.
hope you have a good weekend!

Go Jake Go! Good for you for finally getting in the pool! I hate the cold too! Joel and I are taking swimming lessons right now and it's been 4 weeks of lessons and he still holds on to me with all his might! Have a happy day my friend! Kim

Wow, it is already really hot there!! We got up to 87 today, so it's getting there!! My middle daughter went to the water park and said it was cold, but got into it anyway. Me? I have to wait until the water is warmer.
