Stayin' Classy

Dear High School English Teacher,

Remember when you said that youth was fleeting and you guaranteed me that when I was old I would no longer want to jump off the diving board?

Well, today I did.

In fact, I did some cannonballs. And the "splits." (It was ugly. Really ugly.)

And I'm pretty sure the lifeguard saw more of my body than he wanted to thanks to a displaced bathing suit upon water impact.

But it was just as much fun as I remembered.

Except the running take-off on the diving board was a bit more jiggly than my misty, water-colored memories.

And my cannonballs?

They made Ron Burgundy look graceful and agile.

Luckily, Jackson and Lilly are young enough that they found this entertaining instead of The Ultimate Ruiner to All Social Status. That day will come..I'm sure of it.

But at least I jumped.

Maybe you should try it sometime.

Miss you!

'scuse me while i kiss this guy....

Ok, I'm actually responding to the previous day's blog. Do you remember when I called you about the book I found at barnes & noble about mistaken lyrics? I laughed so hard at Lilly's interpretation of 'Blessed be the name of the Lord'. That child lays me out,,,,everytime!

I miss you, can I come visit?
