While shopping at Goodwill a few weeks ago, I stumbled upon a brand new inflatable pool via a Target donation. Of course it was early October and raining like pitchforks and hammer handles outside (yes, that is an actually saying), and so explains the inflatable pool at Goodwill. Of course I had to snag it. Grace hasn't yet grasped the concept of delayed gratification, so I feared I would be hearing, "can we go swimming in our pool" until July. I came up with a great solution and inflated it in the middle of the living room. There was no water involved, but the kids still had a blast.
