So, back to the summer, the Son will start camp in a few weeks and he's also enrolled in some fun enrichment classes. We'll be heading to the pool starting next week (since it's supposed to be in the 90s here already) and I'll continue to work out at the Y because I really do enjoy that.
I was also offered another job opportunity yesterday that is very "summery" and should be a lot of fun. I am going to run two weeks of the "Aquatic Adventures" camp. (at the Y of course) Apparently, the person who was in charge of it is no longer able to do it and the Director of the preschool knows my background (I've been a camp director and a teacher) and that I'm teaching swimming now and she asked if I'd be interested. It's not until July so I'll have a bit more time to get my swimming skills and swimming teaching skills in order. I'll have plenty of lifeguards and counselors working with me. Evidently, these weeks are the most popular two weeks of camp so I might be a popular lady at the Y. Kids generally like me and I expect this to make me really cool in their eyes! The camp is for grades 1 through 6 and the description is as follows:
A wet and wild week of fun in July! Skilled YMCA instructors (that's me) will guide your child through pool challenges, games and aquatic skills. Campers must be comfortable in the water and ready to swim every day. Not for beginning swimmers. Camp includes a trip to [a local water park]. (Yay! A water park!)
The Son was already enrolled for camp for one of those weeks so I'll probably just end up enrolling him for the second week as well. It still ends up that I'll make some good money though since I get a discount on his camp enrollments. I'll have to work 8:30 to 4:00 and then head right to my swim teaching job on Mondays and Wednesdays so I imagine I'll be pretty tired after two weeks of that but it should be a good, fun, tired. OOOOH, I'm getting excited already!
I'm going bathing suit shopping tomorrow. I hate that but I really need more than what I have now and I have to find suits with shorts that go over them so I need to start looking now. This is the only downside to the new job...oh well, at least I'll be having some fun this summer, even without a vacation.
