It's almost here, the end of school, light at the end of the tunnel, take a deep breath...freedom....ahhhhhh... SUMMER! I am in love with summer, because that means that I get to sneak in my little boys' rooms in the mornings, tickle their sweet little boy feet, gently wake them with the smell of pancakes or waffles and bacon cooking, and tell them to get ready.....WE ARE GOING TO THE POOL! The pool that we go to has got some of the most awesome girls and guys as lifeguards. They love my kids. They do. I can see it in their faces when we arrive there the first few days of summer. These are college kids, COLLEGE. They never act like they are too cool to hang out with my 12 and 9 year old children. At pool breaks you can find them IN the lifeguard stand, eating popcicles and taking a break with the BIG kids. I love them, these guarders of LIFE. They are amazing, and I truly appreciate the people that they are. Now don't get me wrong, I am not one of these mothers that lays by the pool and expects them to watch my kids. If one of my children slips from the diving board, I am the first one in. But these lifeguards at our pool are amazing. I love them, and I make them brownies with chocolate bars baked in! Mwah, to all the Pines Pool lifeguards!
