   On Saturday we went to a new park for Josh’s swim meet. All week Josh practiced diving and this was his first meet where he was able to dive in. He was very excited and he did very well.

  Afterwards we went to North Oaks park (our local pool) and Noah showed off his front flips off the 1 meter spring board there until one of the lifeguards tightened up the board – that slowed Noah down a bit – but not much!

   Next week is Josh’s last meet of the summer. . .

Congratulations Linda and Luis . . .
