The first frigid swim

Today's high: 73 degrees
Last night's low: 47 degrees

In Georgia, this would be early-March weather, and I would never agree to let my kids swim. Here, however, this is apparently mid-June weather, and the kids are out in full force at the town pool. Agreeing with "the locals" that it was a hot summer day, my kids begged to go swimming today.

They lasted approximately 35 minutes before admitting, through teeth chattering so hard I was afraid they might break, that it was too cold. When we got home, Joshua spent half an hour with a blanket wrapped around him . . . though he does have a flair for the dramatic.
