But when I let the dog out, it didn't seem too bad.
Either way, this a great change considering the past few weeks have featured days of 104 degrees. I'm. Not. Kidding. (What I am doing is melting.)
So what's a family to do to beat the heat? That's just what today's Summer Blog Challenge is all about.
How do you beat the heat?

Yeah... they may have a touch of my sadistic sense of humor.
Can I just say how amazing it is to have a water balloon type fight without tying knots in little balloons? I hate tying off balloons.
Okay, the best part of this is the ease of the project. Take a sponge, cut it in thirds lengthwise and tie them together. Some people used fishing line or zip ties, I used... yarn. (You knew I was going to say that. I have an overabundance of yarn and it needs to be used.) After it's all tied together, fluff it up a bit.
That's it. The end. You've made one. Make 9 more and you'll have 10. Enough for a fun battle for two. (Or more, if you want to make fighting for a bomb part of the game... which we did.)
I used the .97 pack of two sponges found in the dish washing section at the grocery store. So the whole thing was $5. Less than a large package of water balloons, easier to make and reusable.
So there ya go! Buy some sponges, make some sponge bombs and beat the heat.
Until next time, Happy Monday!
