Invest in experiences, not things

Pool Day

|

All work and no play makes Nate a dull boy. Lots of work has been completed on the teak deck removal, but not fun. Today after work I filled some more screw holes with epoxy, completely finishing all the areas we’d removed teak from! The weather was hot so Natalie and I took Sully up to the pool for a swim call.

First we put him in his life jacked and let him float. Now I know if he were to ever fall in the water that I’d immediately want to jump in after him because in the pool his face kept going in the water. We’ll let him practice with the life jacket more to see how he gets better at swimming with it.

  1. Gee, I wish someone taught me to swim when I was Sully’s age. He will be like a fish in the water! Wonderful photos!

  2. Great to see you got to the pool! Looks like he’s feeling comfortable in the water! All those big smiles! 🙂
