The thrilling part for me yesterday (a hot one at that), was the early morning "adult float around." I think it was close to 80 degrees at 8:00am when I jumped in to float around (borrowed a floatie from the guard); the pool sparkling clean and very refreshing. The two hours quickly went by, and I was on to the next thing...tennis with the family.
Later in the afternoon, I refereed two games of youth soccer, and it was wonderful to be back on the pitch since March, even in the heat of the day. I'm not sure how much soccer will be played this fall, but I was happy to get in two good games nonetheless.
By early evening, I appealed to my two guys to come with me to the pool for a "sundowner swim around" (my words/idea). They both surprisingly obliged! It was fun to splash around for a bit and cool off with the water so inviting and tranquil; especially as the sun was going down.
