It’s mid-March. It’s Autumn. Already.
Where did Summer go?
Don’t get me wrong, I love Autumn and Winter and Spring here on the Gold Coast. The weather is absolutely perfect for 9 months of the year. Whereas Summer tends to be hot and humid and, these past 2 years, very wet.
The great thing about Summer is swimming without the need for a pool heater. The water is usually cool and inviting (when it’s not raining).
But Summer has gone and the weather is turning a little cooler. So did that stop the kids from going for a swim after school?
Not. On. Your. Life.
Of course, that meant one of us had to join in and, when we do, the kids continually climb all over us. We don’t get a minute’s peace. Swimming for us is anything but relaxing. But it is fun regardless.
We only have a couple more weeks before the water will be too cold to swim in, unheated. So they’d best make the most of it and jump in, any chance they get!
Actually, I might arrange to get the pool heater installed so they can swim for a few more months. Just in time for Winter.
After all, swimming is the best exercise for kids, and especially for James.
