The immediately conjured up images of my boy in swim trunks jumping into a frigid body of water. "You did what?" I asked.
"I joined the Polar Bear Club."
"What exactly do you do in the Polar Bear Club?"
"We go outside for recess when it's cold outside, and everybody else stays inside."
For those of you who don't know, I live in Georgia, where it doesn't get very cold. We're talking an average winter temperature of 45 degrees. "You're telling me that you don't go out for recess when it's less than 50 degrees unless you're a member of the Polar Bear Club?"
He nodded. "That's right."
Wow. Fifty degrees is warm by my winter standards. (I'm from Cleveland, Ohio.) I think I'd even join the Polar Bear Club and wear shorts and a t-shirt outside!
(But I don't think I'd do this:)
