Our weather has been awful this winter. It's cold and bitter and icy. Yuck. This week the kids did not have school one day because the roads iced overnight. What do you do when school is cancelled for ice? You swim. We literally had the pool at the rec center to ourselves for about two hours. A few people came and went later in the day, but, we had our own private swim party, complete with a life guard, on an icy winter day.
