This is pretty much how we plan to spend every Friday night this summer - at the pool until it closes at 9pm. The kids love it when the lights come on in the pool. We love the ease of ordering a pizza and bringing a cooler full of goodies to go along with it.
McIver is doing a great job swimming this summer. It did not take him long at all to remember what to do. We decided to sign him up for a few swim lessons, though, b/c he needs to be told (by someone other than his parents, apparently) to swim horizontally with his face in the water. He's got quite a crush on the head lifeguard, Taylor, so we're hoping that she can convince him that he'll swim faster and not be so tired if he'll follow her instructions. She timed him swimming the length of the pool the other day - 1:25:44. I was impressed that he could make it, but it was not a pretty sight to see! We're hoping the lessons will help with that.
