While we were camping this weekend, we spent a lot of time at the camp site's pool.
Most of it was spent like this:
And doing "pencil dives" in the deep end, twisting jumps, cannon balls, catching balls and jumping for frisbees, racing, playing Marco Polo, and generally just messing around and having a good time. Made possible by his new-found swimming ability.
In the process of it all, though, he built the endurance (and courage) to swim the length of the pool. Nice little byproduct, eh?
