Tomorrow is the 15th, so that means grocery shopping day. That makes today meal planning, grocery list-making day. We also have plans to go swimming at the Y with our friends, and today is Andy's last swim lesson for the summer. He's done SO well with his lessons.
As Y members we paid $45 for 8 25-minute lessons, and we got a $10 discount for signing up for a subsequent session. That works out to about $5 a lesson, which I don't think you could find anywhere else. Since we do pay for a Y membership we try to really use all the advantages of it. They offer a lot of extra family programs that you couldn't get with a regular gym. My kids attend a fitness class for kids two days a week, and enjoy playing with their friends in the childcare room while I work out. We use the pool a lot, and take advantage of their monthly cookouts, and lunches they have. They usually have programs for the kids around holidays, as well. Since having a membership somewhere is kind of a frivolous thing, I want to make sure we get the most out of it that we can.
