Odd fall weather we're having. The girls carved pumpkins wearing tank tops and sunscreen, and now it's so hot again that Ree said "We might as well go swimming, mama." So we did. Yesterday, and then again today. We were the only ones at the pool, but I'm thinking that's because folks were giving more credence to the calendar than the thermometer. I know I've never been swimming in November before. Here are a few pics taken with my purse camera. Ree is in the yellow and orange goggles and Ro is in the pink and purple ones. The girls wanted to make sure I told daddy what they'd been up to, they were so excited. So TubaDad, here's what we did while you were at work yesterday and today. That last picture cracks me up, they were kicking so hard that the water looks like churned ice. They've been doing a lot of swimming without the vests, but I don't have many pictures of that because I am busybusybusy when they're swimming wild and free. Oh, and we're collecting leaves because I told the girls we could make some fall garlands with them. Should have looked up some instructions before I mentioned it -- is it even possible? Guess I'll have to go Google it. If you have any other neat decorating ideas/projects that the kids could help with, please share. Because I'm thinking that if the weather continues like this, the only way it'll look like fall around here is with some nice, festive decorating.
