Nelson has enjoyed swimming since he was a boy and wanted to teach Jacob, so we decided to try this one out. We all enjoyed getting some exercise, and Jacob is learning how to swim. Lucas spent the first hour clinging to us but was jumping around in the two-feet section and laughing by the time we were ready to go home.
We hope to make weekly visits from now on. There were less than 10 other kids there when we went this past Saturday, but I’m sure that will change once school lets out. They had two swimming lanes and a shallow area for younger children.
Here’s the info in case you and your family want to check it out.
