The grandkids came over yesterday to swim in the new pool that papa got for them. It is quite a bit deeper than the little wading pool they had. (That one went to keep a puppy cool for the rest of the summer.) Nic got himself a floating last week. So Harlee had to have one too. They look like inflated donuts. Coop has a tiny one. Anyway they seem to be having fun out the back. Good thing it fits on the lower deck, because with a hill in our back yard, it makes it hard to put up a pool.
A lot of the state is on fire because it is so dry and hot. We need rain desperately. So far July is the 5th hottest on record and 6th driest. Harvesting is early. Last Sat. we drove west to Seeley Lake to visit their quilt shop as they were having their big birthday sale. As we went through Lincoln, which is about 90 west of us you could see the smoke coming out of the mountains and they had a fire camp all set up.
And last week we finished up 3 weeks of swimming lessons with the grandsons. Coop still won't jump off the side or the diving board. But he did get in the water and paddle around. I mean he is only 4.
