Y'all, this is a really good phase of my life. I feel so blessed. This afternoon, we sat at a round patio table, surrounded by a few dear friends under some giant oak trees, while our kids ran wild at our neighborhood pool. I can't remember if I wrote about it or not, but we LUCKED OUT last winter when I randomly searched Craiglist for a pool membership for our neighborhood pool and by God, there was one, so I jumped on it. Our neighborhood pool is a hot commodity with a long waiting list (we were on it for FOUR years!!! prior to my lucky day). The dues haven't changed in like 20 years, so it's very reasonable in cost. It is a nice, but not fancy facility with a covered playground, tennis, well-kept pools and a basketball court. There are a set number of memberships, so it's not terribly crowded. The best part about it, in my opinion, is that they are very informal and don't care if you bring drinks, as long as they are not in glass containers. They also play really good music. We are having such a fun summer!
