My 2 cents (worth less than that) is wait until the newness of K wears off.... At the beg. of the school year with a Kindy DD? She was TIRED (and we went half day). By Oct? she was fine
LAst year my 5 yo Kindy DD went to school half day. Generally 3 activities per week - Hebrew school, soccer or ice skating and Spanish. This year she switches to full day (still gets out at 2) and we are cutting back until we see how she does... we try not to schedule things on MOndays - because she gets her homework for the week on Mon and our goal is to get that done as much as possible on Monday - and if that falls behind? we drop an activity (but Hebrew school is...
Yup. warmbelly.com! Did this for months But in the end, I switched pools. Chances are? YOUR pool has swim meets, at which there is a MAX acceptable temp at which they set the pool.... you can't shift the temp of a pool quickly so they keep it there.

SPorts bra? No. Sports bras? Yes I wear my best supportive bra with one of those generic sports boob smashers OVER it. And voila! I can do jumping jacks!
Find your local rugby club. Go to a game. Chances are good that there are plenty of kids on the sidelines speaking Afrikaans... get a playdate going. THis is partially in jest, but DH plays rugby and it's astonishing how many Springboks are about
Hooray for you and a healthy ending. I'm in CA and we have lifeguards at my gym/pool. Many of them. Usually 5 lifeguards for one 25 yeard pool plus 2 foot kiddie pool. ANd they are all really well trained There's a sign posted that ONLY children who can swim halfway across the pool, swim back and exit the pool by the side (not the steps) are allowed in the pool without a parent IN THE POOL
