Journaling: My Water Boys....July 1998 We bought an Elmo sprinkler from Wal-Mart so the boys could cool off during the hot summer. This was JT's first time in a sprinkler, and boy did he have a great time. He squealed and laughed. When Kyle turned the spray on JT's face, he ran away for a moment to catch his breath. They spent a lot of time outside in the water, and it was a cinch to get them to get out of the house if mom promised a romp through the sprinkler. Something so cheap can be entertaining.
