What the heck, summer’s flying by! Where have I been? In the pool, saving $500 a month by, are you ready, teaching my own children to swim. Who knew modern parents were capable of this sort of thing. Aside from the large money issue, I decided it would be a really special thing between us, to be able to say, “Hey, I taught you how to ride a bike and swim!” So I downloaded the following lovely little e-book for eight buckeroos. How nifty! It cracks me up that pool behavior hasn’t really changed much–remember trying so hard to sit indian-style (that’s probably not politically correct terminology any more is it?) on the bottom of the pool? Brian and I were both equally impressed with our backhandspring skills. So if you’re in the area sometime between 8:00am and 8:00pm the side gate will be open. Push hard, it sticks a little.
