It has been very hot and humid here, in fact, our home thermometer has read 100 degrees once already! Yesterday, the kids eagerly requested that Terry “puh-leeeeeze” spray them with the water hose to cool them off. He agreed to do so today. However, it turns out that he came up with an even better idea, one which thrilled the kids even more! He created a homemade “slip ‘n’ slide” using an old tarp and a water hose! Our kids were laughing and squealing with such delight that the neighbors wanted to come join us. 🙂
Here are a few pictures of Daddy’s “better idea.” 🙂

I wish we could get a pool for our kids, or maybe even a real slip ‘n’ slide, but since we cannot, I’m so happy that they are learning to be content with what they have.

Heb. 13:6 Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.

    Looks like lots of fun! The kids may be doing that this weekend, it was 90 here today 😦


  2. Fun, fun, fun! I wish we could even do this…but we have so much rocky, dirt that it would hurt.

    Enjoy the water fun!

    That's awesome. . going to have to try that this summer. . we've bought the slip n slides and they're always too short and too narrow for our kids to really “get going” on them.
