We set it up. And soaped it up (because that's what they always do in the movies). Only Miles decided to soap up himself, instead.
One of our favorite things about Miles is the way his lip quivers when he gets chilly. The cold water really got the lip going today. But don't feel too sorry for him- it was almost 90 degrees outside! (There is no essential audio in this short video if you don't feel like pausing the playlist)
When we were finished sliding for the day, the kids realized that we had forced a ton of night crawlers out of their holes with all of our water wasting. So they went on a worm round up.
Sadie and Noah took those worms over to the swingset and I thought that they were burying them in the sandbox. However, I realized (all to late) that they were actually performing worm operations. Those poor worms got hacked to pieces with plastic sandbox shovels and their guts got strewn about the back yard. I have evidently not done an adequate job of teaching respect for all of God's creatures.
But all in all, the slip n' slide was a fantastic purchase. If this is a preview of how wonderful summer is going to be then I can't wait for it to start! Now- if I could just convince Kamron that we need a pool!
