A Good Friend!

As promised, Chelita showed up on Saturday to help us clean out our pool. Jeff had to see some patients and go to baseball practice with Carter, but Madison and I were ready to clean it out. Carter and Patrick also got in and did their part. It took all of us around 5 hours of work to get it ready to fill up, but we had a great time doing it. Chelita got in there and helped scrub those walls with the same zest as she would have had it been her own pool. I appreciated her so much!! Madison ran the shop vac and directed the entire process...she has always helped Jeff and knew exactly what we all needed to
The kids all had a great time playing....finding little frogs to play in the water once we started putting water back into the pool. It was so fun to watch them slip and slide in there with those frogs!!!
We had grilled cheese sandwiches out on the deck for lunch. The weather was so beautiful. What could have been a hard work day turned into a play day :).The pool is still filling up today..on Sunday, but the kids have all had friends over playing in it. Madison and her friend, Elyse, finally got too cold and got out the 4wheeler, go-cart, and tent stuff to play something else. Jeff and Carter are off fishing. It's so hard to think of doing school tomorrow....this beautiful weather is torture!!
Thanks Chelita for all of your help. I enjoyed you and your boys so much this weekend!!

This weather is torture! We haven't done a thing yet today...I am thinking it will stay that way.

We had so much fun, Sherri!

Well, at least it is raining today. We are still working...trying so hard to get through some stuff!!
The pool is full, but our motor on the pump is broken, so Jeff had to buy a new one today. As soon as he gets home and hooks it up, we will be able to start treating it. I'm so glad the sun didn't come out today...that was a blessing because it could have started algea growing without the chlorine!!!

Looks like a great, fun day! I agree, this wonderful weather we have been having is torture for us. We want to spend all day outdoors.
