Year 2, Day # 39 - How to Make a Swimming Pool

The Overholt children are making a much needed swimming pool in the park. I hope they get it big enough so we all can use it.


  1. Reminds me of when my youngest, 11 at the time, asked if he and some friends could dig a hole. I told them sure but it had to be in the 'play yard'. For days, we all knew where the all neighborhood children were at all times; our 'play yard' digging this hole! What was it for? They weren't sure but it came in handy when they played hide and seek in the dark! I made them put one of his dad's traffic cones (he was a police officer) inside it so some unsuspecting grown up did not fall head first into the hole which had grown to be 2 1/2 feet deep, and 5 feet wide! It slowly filled in over the years and when we moved out our son was 18 and the hole had all but disappeared :-(

    Thanks for the picture, Katie ... you always amaze me!
