Today my memories are about our pool and all of the good times we have had in it.
It was here when we moved into our house almost 15 years ago. So many good memories include our pool. Our three children learned to swim in it. They have had swimming competitions in it. My husband has pretended to be a water monster in it, producing loads of giggles and belly laughs from my children! My daughter and I have exercised in it. We have had parties and lots of family and friends in it. We’ve lounged by it and jumped in when we got too hot. We’ve gone in it on hot nights. We’ve gone in it on cool nights, when the water was warmer than the air. My daughter and I created our first Stan & Floss Adventure using it.
We’ve roasted marshmallows in it.
My husband is now in the process of demolishing our pool. I feel sad about it. I feel like I’ll lose the memories. I’m sad that we won’t create new ones with the pool. It feels like one more step away from they joys of childhood. Sigh.
