32 days of triple digit heat... precisely why we are inside doing things like this:

I'm so happy our kids like to make up their own games!

In this kind of heat, my survival instincts tell me to stay near the A/C.

Unless, of course, we're at the pool and the kids play one of MY made-up games, the Swimming Decathlon:

1. 5 laps
2. 10 flip turns
3. 10 backwards somersaults
4. 10 hand stands
5. 5 canon balls
6. 10 safety rail pull ups
7. 10 laps around stairs
8. 5 back flop plunges
9. 10x swim under lane line
10. 10 cross-leg sits on bottom of pool

Necessity is the mother of invention.

What dreadful hot weather we have!
It keeps me in a continual state of inelegance.
~ Jane Austen

Our balloon rainbow arch was originally made for our South African daughter's birthday.

More on her visit soon...
