It may not technically be summer yet, but when the pool bag makes its way from the hall closet to the coat rack, we may as well call it summer. This is where it will stay when not in use and it is used, ahem, almost daily during the summer. The coat rack becomes the pool towel rack and the spring jackets return to the closet.
Yes this weekend Mr. CV, the boys, and I are all going to spend our time poolside working on our tans and reconnecting with our summer friends.
By the way, our 14 year old son painted this picture when he was just a little guy and we have enjoyed his perspective of the seasons for many years. I miss those days of our boys bringing home pictures from school, sniff.
