S is for Summer and Swimming!

We have these great friends at church that let us use there pool every summer while they are at work during the day. So since it gets so HOT in SC we try to go at least once a week if not more! And this year Mari has been coming with me a lot so that makes Joel very happy because he gets to play with Sal. Most of the time the people that come have younger kids so he doesn't really have anybody to play with. Joel and Sal have really grown closer this year. It is fun to see their friendship grow. Riley and Samantha too, they play very well and love each other very much. I think they will be good friends too. As for Jesse and Donovan, that is another story. They put up with each other but I would not call them "best friends". It is funny, because all of them are about the same age(s). And those two there is just something that doesn't click. Trust me, Mari and I have tried. I guess both of them are used to playing with their older brother(s) so having somebody your own age around is not too much fun. I don't know... it would be funny if they end up being best friends. Josiah already talks about Samual. It is very funny. The Two Musketeers Jesse practising his stroke. Nina teaching Riley how to do a flip under water.
Walter keeping an eye on his mom.
Josiah found a water gun.

It has been fun...and I am glad the kids are growing closer together. We will have to make sure the school year doesn't drive to much of a gap between them. As far as daonoava and jesse well we will keep holding out for a small miracle...heheeeeheee
