Over the moon

We have a pool and I'm over the moon about it!  This seems to me a feat of unusual proportions.  To make a long story short, we had to install it ourselves.  What an overwhelming task!  Dustin says it is the first and last pool he will ever put up.  However, we have a WONDERFUL group of friends who pitched in to help us have a way to escape the heat (or increase our chance of skin choose) and we are now swimming daily.  The icing on the cake was the other night when our foster daughter, R, said to Dustin "Thank you for building us a pool!"  They love it...and so do I.

Dustin dug and leveled the ground for the base

Noah helping put up the wall

Adam pitched in too

Lesson learned while installing the liner:  A beaded liner is prettier, but harder to install

The girls LOVE it!

Many, many thanks to the following guys:  Trent Regier, Jeremy Stieglitz, Jayme Schwartz, Ed Schwartz, Noah Bontrager, Adam Zern, Jerry Fessenden, and Shane Stieglitz.  I'm sorry I did not think to pull out my camera to get a picture of each of you in action.  Please know your efforts were appreciated.

And, of course, a huge thank you to my hubby for the HOURS he spent working on this the past few weeks! 

**If I forgot someone here, please forgive me!  I promise it was not intentional.**
