Is it too cold to swim

So Ben and Alex have been wanting to go in the pool, we have been saying it is cold..well the pool might be but the outside temperature has been in the high 80's and crossing into the 90's, so we just let them go. Allan was even brave enough, although he will confirm, it was cold!!
Ben was reminiscing yesterday after school that he likes diving deep in the summer as the water down there is cool and on the top of the pool it is just too warm to swim in, but he was not having that problem this week he said. I just laughed and asked what it was like down deep and he said too cold for his ears. They all had fun, now I suppose as the pool season gets nearer, i will have to get down there and sort the furniture out and sweep of the rugs and make it look lovely again..I love our pool and we have shade and beautiful furniture this year so it will be a lot of fun.

Ben contemplating the deep end

he is not sure..telling me it is colder

he started in the shallow end

then rushed out again..

Then alex joins the fun

Allan, the hero just dives in from the side

when he surfaces...cold !!!

Alex teases us on the board..but would not dive

he keeps looking, but by now knows this is not warm enough for him

Tex on the other hand, no problem at all- straight in

then it is time to collect all the pool toys and head in

Why did we throw the toys in??? cold to retrieve

Tex is happy to get her bone, and just ignores the other things

one happy Benjamin
