Back on - sorry, swimming, and school

I just realized it's been a month since I posted. I must have been collecting photos and composing posts in my head without actually posting them. Sorry!

It's been warming up here, to the point that swimming is now a nearly daily activity. We started when it was bracing, but couldn't swim long due to lips turning blue. For the last week or so, it's been so nice we've spent an hour or more in at a time.

At a recent party at a friend's, the boys were swimming when William performed a tricky twisting backward drop into the pool from a seated start...a bit too close to the edge. We took a quick trip to the local hospital/clinic for a couple stitches.

It was our first real test of the medical system here and we were quite pleased. William was wiped out afterward, to nobody's surprise.

Later in the week (in fact, starting the next morning) he returned to his usual chipper self.

We're looking forward to Thursday, when the stitches come out and he can get back in the pool.
