It is so hot here. Hot hot hot! Yesterday we had an all time record of 109 beating the old record of 108, met four times since the 1880s. HOT!! How are you beating the heat? We are also in the midst of an extreme drought. I have not planted any flowers or a garden this year – thank goodness!
We are staying inside and running the a/c – and the electric bill up! Our water is well water so I am sure the electric bill is getting a boost from that too. And the boys are swimming and playing in the water. But we have not really made it to some sort of normal summer routine yet. And Zachary heads for camp next week. Looks like the mountains around Red River, where we wanted to go for a couple of weekends this summer, are also dry dry. Not as warm as here but I think I heard there was going to be a ban on campfires. We may still go jus to be in a nice cool place. For a few days anyway!
Swimming lessons are going well. The first day Zane was immediately moved up. He is enjoying the lessons this year immensely.

The boys love to go down the slide.Zachary patiently waiting for Zane’s class to end.Zachary is at the end of his indoor football season. He has been playing more as quarterback this season and really has the arm on him. And he is not afraid to stay in the pocket and find his man. More later. Summer activities.
