It is one of life's bitterest truths that bedtime so often arrives just when things are really getting interesting.

Today was so hot.
100 + heat index
The boys complained that is was even hot in the pool.
Now, that is hot.

We decided to go inside and wait for the moon.
Then we slid into the warm water and enjoyed the last moments of the day.
It was so dark. We decided to turn off the pool and deck lights and just use the moon as our night lite. A little scary at first, I must say. Have you ever dove into pitch blackness. Logic tells you there is nothing waiting beneath the surface...but your mind says different. Chilling and exhilarating. You swim a little harder and faster when you feel as if something unseen is close enough to touch you.
Exhausted, the kids came in and entered dream land posthaste.
