The water is like magic... it's like a potion for children that calls them to play and laugh and forget about everything else.

Forget about meals.

Forget about video games.

Forget about what it's like to not have water in the back yard at home.

It's a little bit of magic for us adults as well. It magically wears children out. Makes them hungry enough to eat their meal without complaint and to fall happily, sleepily into bed.

The children begged to be in the water, as soon as they opened their eyes  this morning. We managed to hold them off until 9:30... They stayed in the water until nearly 3:00 this afternoon. No lunch. No naps. No worries.  It was glorious. It was magic.
