We didn't do any major remodeling to our house this year, but we did make a big purchase recently: a diving board! When we bought the house years ago, we noticed that there was already a U-frame installed. This was the first summer in which both of our kids enjoyed being in the pool. We saw them both jump off our friends' diving boards and decided that it'd be a good addition to our backyard. Since the U-frame was already installed, we had no choice but to get a 12 ft. board. It has been so much fun watching Jason and the kids jump off. The weather is much cooler now, but I look forward to a lot of fun times in the pool next summer!
