Pool Party

On the last day of school,  Anna had a pool party.  After so much moving around in her early life, it is very nice to know that we've stayed in one place long enough for her to establish friendships. 

I drove our truck to school and stuffed 9 kids in for the ride to our house.   (In Idaho it's still legal to ride in the back of a pick up.  At least,  I'm pretty sure it is!)  A few additional kids came by other means.

There was a lot of splashing and screaming.

There was also a lot of food.  We had Coca-Cola in glass bottles.  After the party Anna told me not one of the kids knew how to use a bottle opener to open the Coke!

Quite a lot of time was spent on the trampoline.   It seems to have become a favorite spot to sit and talk.

Kids left at various times throughout the day.   Those who were left in the evening moved into "the movie room" and watched Grease - funny to me since I saw that when I was in high school. 

I drove the remaining kids home around 9 p.m.  Anna had done a good job of hostessing  and she was exhausted.   

It was a great day.
