Tackle it Tuesday -- Summer's Starting

Tackle It Tuesday Meme


This weeks tackle was a pretty hefty one -- which I had VERY little to do with, but I did take the time to capture it on film, so that counts, right???

It's beginning to warm up...time to take the cover off the pool!

Yuck.











There was plenty of work for everyone and everybody pitched in to make the pool...





beautiful again!!!

Yep, it's a big pool -- 17 by 24 feet. Totally a gift from God! Last furlough we were visiting in Oregon and a friend said that he wanted to bless us, but didn't know if we'd want a pool. It was given to his family, but they couldn't set it up, because they had foster kids and didn't want to construct a fence, etc., to install it at their house. Well, there aren't any zoning restrictions here, so we said "Sure!" But we had no idea how big it was. We thought it was 9x12 feet! Needless to say, we had to flatten a little more land in order to set it up! It's not exactly on our property, either, but the neighbor doesn't care, so...

It's been absolutely wonderful for our youth ministry here. We had a dozen boys over this afternoon after baseball practice. Great outreach tool!

What a great gift! The pool looks so fun and refreshing. We can't wait to swim this summer.

Taking pictures totally counts! I can't wait until the weather is nice enough here for my dad to open up his pool. I have full intentions of taking advantage of it this summer.
