Some Beach

10:33 PM

Climbing out of the pool after 2 freezing hours of swimming lessons today sure had me thinking about a place like this:

And speaking of swimming lessons, I have this adorable little boy in one of my classes right now named Bentley. 4 years old, giant smile, never closes his eyes under water, sweet as can be. I somehow ALWAYS get water in my ears during his class (can't imagine why with class full of 4 year olds that can't stop splashing the entire 30 minutes?). I always do the "knock and shake"... you know that dance. Pound on your head and jump on one foot until you can hear again. It took me a bit to catch on, but I realized that every time I do this, Bentley starts knocking on his head too. He just smiles and looks at me, obediently copying my every move. So funny.

Happy Friday!
