Every year some wonderful family from our church volunteers to host the youth group for a summer kickoff pool party, and this year it was the Ford family. Mrs. Tammy took my painting classes last year and quickly became one of my favorite ladies. Today I fell in love at first sight with their precious golden retriever, Sophie:
I’m crazy about big, calm, ultra furry dogs and Sophie was that. She smelled nice too which is always a plus!
All the guys, which make up most of the youth group, had a big time doing group cannonballs and trying to catch Ben’s tennis ball passes in midair:
While the girls did what girls do—stayed in the shallow end gossiping about boys and singing songs with the radio.
I do so love summertime when it’s still new—before the temperatures hit 100. It was a perfect day to spend outside.
