Today we spent most of the morning and early afternoon working. First we gave all the dogs their heartworm and groomed them, which entails nail trims, brushing, trimming their tails, and a good physical exam to check for ear infections, dirty teeth, lumps etc. Then the goats got their hooves trimmed. Then we mowed the yard while the kids played squirt guns for 2 hours. Then our oldest dog Cami got a bath from me and my daughter, since she has to go to the vet tomorrow for her 6 month senior checkup. After all that it was time to relax a little. With the help of the solar cover the pool got up to 78 degrees today, so we hopped on in. Our first time in the pool this season. The kids had a ball. Last year our son was so close to touching the bottom, but still needed his life vest, so this year I had it ready, but I thought I'd try it without the vest first. He hopped in stood up on the bottom and took off swimming. I am so glad we don't need the vest, but a little sad cause he is growing so fast. Both our kids are excellent swimmers. We bought this pool as a fathers day gift for my husband when our daughter was 4 and our son was one and a half. Neither one could touch the bottom back then, so they have learned to propel themselves with out touching and now swim like fish. After our swim we took off to the local LaRosa's pizza to enjoy nice pizza. Then it was baths and off to bed. those kids were beat. They will sleep good tonight.
