a pirate ship and a 3 meter diving board

pirate-ship2.jpgWe’ve been going swimming several times a week at the various city pools this summer. When I casually mentioned that one of the “family aquatic centers” had a pirate ship, it was all the boys could talk about. Caleb wondered if it had a slide too. Consulting the handy dandy summer “Fun Guide,” we discovered that not only does it have a slide but it has a 3 meter diving board. Alex was beside himself with excitement. I thought he would be too scared to go off the high dive. I really did. But I was wrong. I told them we would go to this pool the next day if the weather was ok, but it rained (praise the Lord; our ground is so dry!) the next day so we had to wait. At the pool, Mary looked and looked for her beloved frog slide that she had grown to love. I held her hand as we circled the perimeter of the pool, searching for her slide. She didn’t believe me that they didn’t have a frog slide here. But she quickly got over it and just had fun!
