The stuff of summer

The kids left the house at 11:00 this morning and I didn't see them again* until dinner.

* (at the house)

They had a picnic at the park, which they took Alexander to and he got anxious for Momma, so they texted me to ask if I'd come pick him up. I did and also hung out the park with them for a while. But then I took Zoë and Alexander home and left the big kids there and they stayed and stayed and stayed until I was begging them to come home for dinner.

Then we had dinner and went swimming and came home and went to bed.

And that's just how summer should be.

(Except that I'm rather perplexed about swimming pools because from the little research I've done it seems that Gwinnett County pools all close at 6:00 pm all summer long and I just am trying to wrap my brain around why. Don't people like to swim after dinner? Part of the reason we bought a pass at the Springville pool instead of the Spanish Fork pool was because the Spanish Fork pool is open until 10:00 pm, which means that it's much easier to get to go to the pool together as a family after Andrew comes home from work. Gwinnett County has quite a few pools and all of them seem to close at 6:00 pm, which is almost unfathomable to me, but whatever...we'll adjust...I'm's fine...)
