  1. I think this photo is a timely post and a good metaphor for the way Aidan started preschool this year. Last year’s entrance was tentative, like hanging out on steps of the pool for a bit before wading slowly in, adjusting to the cool temperature. This year he jumped in with both feet, and told me afterward “We were pretty crazy during snacktime.” I later found out the teacher had to move the kids’ seats to boy-girl-boy-girl.

  2. beautiful! We (Caleb, Brody, mom/Grma, and I) just finished up our last mommy-and-me swim class of the summer. Caleb spent every class wailing “I don’t want to go under! I hold the side of the pooooo!” This picture gives me hope!
