2. Our swimming pool is now open. We're nowhere near having warm enough water to go swimming, but our pool has gone from a murky swamp that would make Shrek happy to a crystal clear body of water. I am now being asked daily by Ellie when she can go swimming. I hope it gets really warm here fast!
3. The dog and I have begun taking nice long walks around the neighborhood in the morning after the girls go to school. I figure it's probably a good idea if I start doing something that could be construed as exercise so that I'll be in good shape when it's labor time. It has the added benefit of allowing me to get some color, too. My arms and face are starting to tan.
