Flashback to Childhood Swimming

Yesterday, as we watched, the kids splashed about in the teacher's pool. They were taking turns with the instructor and supposed to be practicing the latest lessons. All I saw was a lot of splashing and smiling.

Suddenly, I started laughing so the adults (including my husband) asked what was so funny.

"When we were little, my sister used to to an inverse 'Nestea Plunge'," I said while wiping the laughter tears from my eyes. "She used to fall face first into the pool with her arms spread like an eagle and yell 'Dead Bird!' It was the funniest thing ever."

While I kept laughing, the adults looked at me oddly. What funny things kids do.

Until the next nap time...
