The temperature around here seems to be hovering in the 117 degree range.
It is hot.
So the other night we found ourselves in the pool.
This wasn’t new to anyone else, these kids are in that thing practically every night, but this night I decided to join them, and there was something magical about swimming those laps back and forth, back and forth, blue lights filtering through the water, so calm all around.
Elle reminded us all that we used to do this for “Tuesday Night Swim Club” when all the kids were younger (I talked about that back HERE).
And that made me nostalgic for those old days where things were simple and there were no big worries and stresses filling up the air.
And also made me grateful that I was there, then, with no phone and no agenda. Just “being.”
And then there, and then again that night with all these big kids.
I don’t want to ever take this time for granted.
And since Lucy didn’t make it in that “little kid” picture above, let’s just watch this little video of her on the sidelines during one of those Tuesday Night shin-digs:
How did I not just eat her up?
