Woooo! It's been HOT! On Monday we got the slip and slide out for the kids (even my 6' tall kid).
(He's a little sore today. As he says - the mind is willing but the body is getting older!)
I posted some more pictures from yesterday. Ben loves the mud puddles that form more then the slip and slide itself. He was covered in mud from head to toe.
Today, Sarah had field day at school.
Here she is doing one of the activities:
Ben and I met Tante Kimmy there to watch for a short while.
"Can we go home? I'm hot." Ben must have said that half a dozen times.
Everyone looked wilted. The teachers were spraying the kids with spray bottles to try to keep them cool.
To stay cool, Ben and I came home and became 'cellar dwellers' for the afternoon. I set up the card table and laid out a bunch of blankets and the bean bag chairs so we could stay cool in the basement. He colored with crayons and we read about six books laying in our 'nest' made from the bean bag chairs. We ate lunch and supper down there, too. Thankfully, Todd and Tim put the AC in the windows tonight. MUCH better in here now. :-)
