Jumping in with Both Feet

Earlier this week, we were invited to spend the day at our neighborhood pool as the guests of Sarah's beloved -- by her, her brother, her dad and me - kindergarten teacher, Mrs. H. The day was gorgeous, the company marvelous, and our Darren, adventurous.

Having never seen a diving board in "real life" (most the pools we've visited have had them removed due to the pricey insurance premiums required to maintain and offer access to them), it was all we could do to make sure Darren had his suncreen on and his water shoes off before climbing aboard and launching outward.

This repeated (over and over and over...) leap form was what I referred to as his "Matrix" move. He had no idea what I was talking about, but it does have that Keanu body position to it, doesn't it?

This one? This one is just pure Darren.

Argh! I can't get my kids to give me their song lists! Can I fill it in *next* Tuesday? Maybe give me a weeks notice on the Tuesday Twinterview?
