I counted it up at the end of the day, and it looks like the girls spent close to 10 HOURS outside today! They left their breakfast partially eaten so they could go play in the yard, and Michael and I took what we thought would be a brief opportunity to clean up a bit inside. 3 hours later, they were still playing happily (while we were quite exhausted from cleaning and unpacking!), so we ate lunch outside and they continued to play for another couple of hours! We took a break to do some laundry (which requires going to our other house as we don't have a washer/dryer here) and went to Target to walk around in the a/c. By the time we got back, we decided that we must turn our air on! I was very against it at first, as I'm pretty sure our HEAT was on last week, but after I walked into a steamy 83 degree kitchen in a house that has only 1 ceiling fan, I relented! The girlies, of course, ran outside as soon as we got home and played until dinner. They are now asleep and I imagine they will rest well tonight!
