The pool is the best way for us to break up our long summer days. There have been a few days when it is just too hot to nap so finding a cool break is essential. We have not one, but two generous neighbors who welcome us to use their pool as our own. Clara talks about swimming day and night, and these pictures were her first trip swimming this season. We had a great laugh watching her giggle and exclaim "this is fun! I love swimming!" I marvel all the time how being a parent brings back all the joys we had as children. Being able to experience her adventures with her is a whole new kind of thrill.
