First swimming of the year

Friday, June 8, 2007 - Personal
It's hard to think that there are cool cats in California that can actually get to swim all year round (I guess Florida, and other southern states too!) - but for us, swimming season doesn't start until June. This past Sunday we went for an impromptu trip to Joel's grandfather's house to break the boys in for the summer pool season. I wasn't even sure if they were going to get in, because during the entire drive there it was raining. But of course, as soon as we got there, it wasn't raining, although a little cloudy. That did not deter the boys. They ran out of the car and went and got changed immediately. Off to the pool they went - jumped in - and to Haydn's huge surprise, he can touch the bottom of the pool and keep his head above water! That kid is ginormous - boy I wonder where he gets it from? (Joel is 6'6" in case you didn't know.)

The best part for me was seeing the look on Joel's grandfather's face as he watched the boys have a good time. He was smiling from ear to ear. I am so glad that they are lucky enough to know their great-grandparents. His smile is one I will never forget!
