We had a pool put in a few months ago, but we made the kids wait until the water was somewhat warm (73 degrees yesterday) before we would allow them to swim at all. It is still too chilly for me (74 degrees), but I did put my feet in today.
They are enjoying the pool already even though I catch them with chattering teeth from time to time. The sun helped keep them warm yesterday while I sat in the shade under an umbrella. Today’s cloud cover is keeping all of us cooler.
They lined up on the side so they could all jump in together. They get along so much better in the pool than anywhere else. That could just be because it’s new, but I hope it continues through the summer.
We didn’t realize we were down to three pair of goggles, so the kids shared today. We probably need to buy a few new toys too, although it’s nice not to have too many to pick up. This pink Puddle Jumper belonged to Big Sister years ago, but the girls love it because it’s pink. As long as it keeps them afloat, I don’t care which one they wear. The twins have swimming lessons later this month, so I’m hoping they will be able to swim without the floats all summer.
