We also lucked out and moved into a community with a pool. It closed Labor day but until then we were going at least every week. They have a big pool and a kiddie pool which made it easier for me to watch all the kids alone because the big kids were in the big pool with their life jackets and then Nora, Jane and I would sit in the kiddie pool together.
As many of you are aware, since it's national news, we've had a lot of water and flooding in this area over the past week. Our family is fine. The area where we live is kind of on this giant hill so our home, school, stores, work, everything has not been affected by the flooding. We have gotten a lot of rain, I feel like I live in Seattle again, but with more hard rains instead of just lots of drizzling. Since I don't watch the news I wasn't aware of the flooding for a couple of days until friends were talking about husbands getting home late because of road closures from the flooding because we do have friends whose husbands work out of Boulder. Anyway, I thought some of you might be interested to know how we're being affected here by the floods. I'll let you know if anything changes.
