Stacy found out that we get a really good deal on YMCA memberships, so we decided to check it out this week. She'd been looking into taking some classes as a non-member, and it's a whole lot cheaper and more convenient if you're a member, anyway. Also, I've basically fallen off the wagon of using the weight room at work, and I think it will be nice to go somewhere specifically for exercising. So, while they're figuring out the paperwork for our membership, we decided to try out their pool yesterday.
There are two pools. One is a bigger pool for swimming laps and has a deep end, and the other seems to be mainly for kids, and is 3 feet throughout, I think. The big pool is about 83 degrees, and the little pool is about 88 degrees. Stacy took Jack into the little pool, and I think he spent the whole time gazing around, wide-eyed. I joined them in there after swimming some laps (15 minutes seems to be my current limit. I think it'll take a while for my body to rebuild that endurance). Jack just couldn't get enough of looking around at the other kids playing. Stacy is going to enroll the two of them in a swim class for parents and children 6 months old, so he'll get plenty of time to learn to enjoy the actual water, I think. He'll already lay back in the water and let it cover his ears, so he's off to a good start.
