Eight years ago, when my family put in a pool, the daycare kiddos watched the process of pool building, and, of course, anticipated getting in. They drooled at the fence, wanting that cool blue water, while I, meanly, provided only an occasional sprinkler or water table. Cruel woman!
It was a huge hit! The children got to swim, which they loved! The parents had a chance to see all the children playing together, and to visit with each other. I got to visit with the families for much longer than we could at drop off or pick up time, and of course, we all got to eat together.
