So for my Random 5 Friday post I’m going to tell you —
5 Random Things I Love (and Hate) About the Pool
1 – Keeps Them Busy – One of the best things about the pool is that it keeps the kids busy. They are outside, having fun, playing games, playing with their friends, and they aren’t inside asking to watch tv or play a video game. I love that aspect of the pool.
2 – Good Exercise – In addition, when they are flailing around in pool, i love that they are getting exercise. It’s important to our family that we are not inactive or “couch potatoes” so i love that they are jumping and diving and swimming and being active.
3 – Play’s Together –Another great things about the pool is that my kids play well together in it. (OK, well, not ALL the time but most of the time.) They have a large age gap so it’s nice when there is something they both enjoy doing.
4 – Keeps Them in Sight – I prefer that they are playing in our yard and enjoying them time where I can see them. So the pool allows them to stay in sight and love being in the yard and it attracts the rest of the neighborhood but at least everyone is where I can see them.
5 – Maintenance – So, now for what I don’t like. I don’t like the maintenance. Now that we have a bigger pool (beyond the kiddie pool range) we can’t just tip it over and dump it so it needs chemicals and claiming and things like that, which is slightly annoying to me. But its worth the rest of the advantages.
