Last week, it was really hot here. As in, to hot for anyone over the age of eight to be outside for very long. Unfortunately, my kids don't appreciate a nice air conditioned house and begged to be outside. Constantly.

We went to grandma and grandpa's one afternoon. She bought a slip-n-slide for Sam. At first, he wasn't sure about it. He begged me to show him how to do it, and I actually considered it. However, I was pretty sure that I might break a bone or at the very least, get the wind knocked out of me. Fear and good old fashioned common sense ultimately prevailed, and I made him figure it out himself. (Later, I was looking at the box and discovered that nobody over 105 pounds should use a I guess it's safe to say that my slip-n-slide days are over. And have been since 1986.)

Being the tough guy that he is, he was a little apprehensive to get water in his face. So we gave him sunglasses....They failed to provide the courage he needed.

Eventually, he worked up the nerve and gave it a try.

Keep enjoying the hot summer!
