first swim

The pool is open, the water is clear, and here we are ready for another summer filled of endless days of swimming. We are eagerly awaiting brown shoulders and pruney fingers that accompany the season. I think it is safe to say that the most anticipated day of the year (second to birthdays and Christmas) is the day the pool cover gets removed and the water below in unearthed. Yesterday the water was 62 degrees, but that didn't stop these children one bit. They were in the pool for most of the afternoon-- cannon balls, lap swimming, and noodle races. The pool is their happy place, and it's been a long, long winter. We are all ready for a warm happy wet summer. Hooray for a new season!
