Pool Day

We're having a quiet summer, and also what feels like a short one. Literature/history and chemistry ran late, and we'll be Latin-ing all summer, in preparation for the new Latin classes (online, with a teacher in Colorado) the kids will be starting this coming school year. Travis is planning on taking a class or two at the community college, and those start in mid-August, and the Latin classes start around the same time. So, short summer. But....

today we went to the pool.
It is a very nice pool, up the road, in Ararat. They have big oaks, so that one can move ones towel into the shade and read when it gets too hot in the sun. And a "zero entry" end, for those of us who really like to ease into the water. And a big slide, and a rope to swing on, and diving boards. A good place to spend an afternoon.

Also, because we are all about non-stop fun when we aren't nosing the grindstone, we went to see the new Minion movie on Sunday afternoon. Katie' idea, and it was a good one! Minions are darling.

Tomorrow we are spending with various dentists (yee haw!!!), but we're planning to finish out the week, weather permitting, with a trip to "our" lake in Virginia. Hooray! I imagine that by mid-August we'll be so worn out by all this madcap fun that getting back to math, science, etc., etc. will feel positively restful!
