The Pool is Open!!!

Much to the kids' delight, we've finally opened our pool and it is ready for swimmin' fun!

Elise in her pink shades, new swim vest and pink sparkly flip flops. Stylin' as usual.

Elise is just a fish when it comes to water. She has no fear. She's trying to make waves with the boogie board.

And Carson is just a spaz in the water! He had a friend with him and they certainly burned some energy in the pool.

After supervising the kiddos in the pool, I decided to tackle the horror behind this door. This is what you see when you enter my house. I was inspired by my recent (and only) trip to IKEA. Who knew the nearest store is the one I stopped at...4 hours from my house! I thought surely there would be one in St. Louis, but no such luck. I had to resort to Target for some organizing supplies.

This is the nightmare that lurks in my front closet. Drives me nuts!

And this is what it now looks like. We'll see how long it lasts, but I'm a happy camper to have it cleaned out and organized. We ended up with a huge bag of trash and a huge bag to go to Goodwill.

Watch out, I'm in a mood to pitch and organize. Wonder how much more I can get done before this mood leaves for a while!

Erin is still terrified of the water. We've been working on it since she came home. She's been taking showers for about 6 months now with no problem. Bath? No way. Pool? No way.

I loved IKEA but David hated it. My next trip is going to be with a friend of mine. Till then, I'll be at Target & Walmart for my organizing needs.

PIPO said... that sexy, tidy closet! I'm a neat freak so that is right up my alley.

The pool...what a little bit of heaven that is.
