One way that I try to get out of the heat for a few hours is to go and take a nice dip in the pool. It seems like swimming is more for kids than it is for adults, but I am one who still enjoys a nice pool day. Just to relax and cool off in the water is great way to spend an afternoon in my book. Children are the ones, however, who get to truly enjoy themselves. They have all the coolest swim gear to play with while they are in the pool. It is also pretty impossible to stay dry at all if you intend on reading a book by the pool. Come on and think about it, though. Pools are meant to be splashed in and it wouldn’t really be fair to ask the kids not to splash, right? That is like giving a child a bouncy ball and telling him or her not to bounce it. Once I have my swimming suit on, I welcome all the splashes I can get.
Make sure that if you live is an area of the country that gets pretty hot this time of the year that you know where the nearest pool is. Take some time for you alone or if you have kids, bring them along with you to the pool. You will have such a great time remembering what life was like when you were little and got to go swimming. Those are some of the best summer memories that I have. To make sure that your kids don’t fight over whose turn it is to use the swim goggles to go “deep sea diving,” please get enough swim gear to go around. This will save you and the rest of us at the pool because we’ll hear more laughing than arguing. Most pools offer swim lessons also if you or your children need to get some better swimming skills. Now, go out there and have a great, wet summer!
