Not to mention on top of the smoke, it was a dry 104 degrees yesterday. We're doing all we can to stay cool and smoke free. I decided on Friday to try a new technique because you can only stay in the air conditioning for so long before cabin fever sets in.
I took a couple of Kalynn's bath toys and froze them in a tub of water.
Then we went outside with a couple of squirt guns and watering cans and spent the next hour "saving" her poor trapped duckies.
I've never seen a kid concentrate so hard on a project. For that hour, the heat didn't matter, the smoke didn't exist. All she wanted out of life was for her Spongebob Squarepants to get out of the ice.
When she finally did free a toy, she was so incredibly proud of herself!
We played so long her little toesies turned to prunes!
I hope everyone is staying cool out there this Summer! If all else fails, just stay inside, soak up the central air and give lessons on Elvis!
