    why we do what we do.

    My youngest (7yrs) I guess brought this home from school today the fourth day of school this year, she's asleep already & I just saw it. It says "draw pictureS" She thought one would suffice. I think the brown spots at the bottom underneath the vertical beams must be the wood feet I made this year.

    You're done SLAMing when:
    1)You lose 1ppm or less FC overnight, & 2)You have .5ppm CC's or less, & 3)your water is clear.

    Re: why we do what we do.

    My son and I took our first swim in our new pool last night. They don't even have the concrete decking poured yet, but the PB said we could jump in if we wanted. There was no way I wasn't going to swim and no way I was getting in with out my son with me. You can't put a price on family memories!!!
