School is not out for anybody yet - but still, summertime has already started for us.

It began by putting up this pool.  It's not much - just enough to sit down and cover your head, it leans a little to one side, and catches too many helicopter seeds, but Punk and Kooka lived in it all day - creating whirlpools, mermaid lagoons, and giggles that carried through the entire yard.  Watching them made my entire week feel better. I hope every day of their lives is as happy as this one.
