I suspect most of you who read our blog are not anywhere near summertime as far as weather is concerned. Here in central Mexico we’ve already seen a number of days in the 90’s and a whole bunch in the 80’s.
With April rapidly coming to a close after finishing a week of camp and two weeks of testing, we realized we hadn’t taken the boys out to a swimming park at all this hot season. With schooling frantically needing our attention and the first arriving work team slated for May 14 to 21. we decided to link up with Brock and Heather Hower and head out to a water park yesterday.
This was going to take a bit of work to pull off. We had already agreed to have the house painters begin work on Monday morning so we needed someone to be here. Beth hired Rosy (from church) to come and just be here all day for $100 pesos! Can’t beat a job like that and we know Rosy has been looking for work but not finding anything. So, with Rosy coming the painters would be able to get started.
Things didn’t quite go as planned.
First, one of the two painters arrived and I noticed he was not in painter’s clothes. He apologetically asked if they could start on Friday since the boss was sick. Wow…sick till Friday and this was only Monday?!? Is he going to make it?!?
Rosy had already arrived and we told her she didn’t need to stay but since we’d contracted her to be there and she’d come, we’d pay her anyway.
Then, Heather called. What would the chances be of yesterday starting out up at camp with rain and temps in the 30’s?!? I would have thought about nil but that’s what we got. It was obvious that where the water park is located it probably wouldn’t even reach 80 degrees yesterday so we decided it just wasn’t going to be a good day for an outing to the swim park. We came back to our house and played some games, the kids played, and we topped it off by watching Kung Fu Panda together…Brock says he saw most of it, but he looked asleep to me.
We were all pretty tired actually…so it was good to relax for the day. I don’t know when we’ll get a chance to swim again. Maybe we’ll find a day in May that will work out. Depends on whether the painters are finished…or started! Doesn’t really matter to me. I don’t like to swim anyway.
