When I was a kid, summers were spent swimming and playing at The Park Forest Aqua Center - and my children are following in that tradition. We lay around the house, lazy as can be, until noon - and then we head for the pool. It's great because my boys can just live in their swimming suits. They put them on for the first time a few weeks ago, and never took them off. Now they wear them to bed, in the shower, out to restaurants, everywhere - then they get up in the morning all ready for the pool. No more putting laundry away for me!!!!
Here's a treat for you. It's like a mini "How I Spent My Summer" slide show kind of thing:
