It’s Fun to Stay at the YMCA

For three summers now, I’ve enrolled my children in the YMCA’s Splash program, which offers free swim lessons sponsored in part by The Katelyn Foundation.  Not only is the price right for these swim lessons, but this wonderful refresher course helps start my girls’ summer off on the right foot flipper.  After a long break from swimming, my girls need to be acclimated to the water once again by relearning proper swimming techniques and water safety awareness.

After their swim lessons, I reward the girls with extra swim time at the YMCA’s zero entry pool and sprayground, complete with bubblers and a water slide.  It’s fun in the sun for every age!


All this week, I’ve sported my bikini, but the long wall of reflective windows has me second guessing my chosen pool attire.  At least swim lessons at the YMCA were the right choice.

    You’re way more brave than me. I wouldn’t be caught dead even in my backyard in a one-piece swimsuit, forget entirely a bikini! haha I’m glad that you folks are having pool fun. 🙂

    I’m here from Mama Kat’s Losin’ It Writer’s Workshop. Have a great evening!

    I’m sorry if you get this twice. It did’t show up on my screen, so I don’t know what happened to my original comment.

    You’re a more brave woman than me! I wouldn’t be caught dead even in my backyard in a one-piece bathing suit, forget entirely a bikini, and definitely not in public. No way, no how. I can just see the Facebook posts on it if I did that. haha I’m glad that you folks are getting some swim-time fun!

    I’m visiting from Mama Kat’s Writer’s Workshop. Have a great evening!

    I love that you get to have such fun with your girls. I’d love to join but it’s out of budget right now.

    Oh and forget the mirrors. Enjoy your body. It’s yours and it’s the only one you’ll have and you’d be surprise all the people who think you are just gorgeous! But who cares what they think anyway. Start seeing your beauty!

    *hug* 🙂
