Autumn is one of the Geeky Family’s favorite times of the year. Fantasy Football to keep Daddy occupied. Cheesy Christmas movies on Hallmark Channel to keep mommy occupied while Daddy is cursing away about starting the wrong players on his fantasy football team. Warm spiced apple cider readily available and pumpkin spiced flavored….everything.
One of the few short comings of the Fall season is the closing of all the outdoor pools due to the cooler temperatures.
But that is not a problem at Goldfish Swim School thanks to their heated pools and amenities.
With the pools heated to a relaxing 90 degrees, it is easy for the kids to stay in the pool for a complete 30 minute class without becoming cold and distracted. It is even relaxing for the the parents as well!
Anyone here ever try to wiggle a cold, wet toddler out of a cold, wet toddler swimsuit and swim diaper? Imagine trying to catch a greased up pig while blindfolded in a snowstorm, all while competing in a professional bull riding match.
Fortunately Goldfish offers many private changing rooms and changing stations to hog tie a wet toddler while you change them. They also have multiple hair dryers available to make sure your child doesn’t head out into the frozen tundra with wet hair. Nobody wants to come down with a cold before the family holiday photo shoot.
But beyond simple comforts, year round swimming lessons is also important to keep consistent skill building for young swimmers and prevent them from regressing into bad habits over the long winter months.
In Grayson’s case, we are (finally) at the point where he closes his mouth when we duck his head under water. Believe me, it took us a long time to get here and I do not want to start that from the top again in the spring!
Please swing by and see our friends at Goldfish Swim School Farmington Hills for more fun details.
And look for Lil G-Man and I in Alexa’s Saturday 11 AM class!
