Goomba’s New Trick

Little Goomba has been hanging around over here lately. He is very much into the pool this year. Literally and figuratively.

He began the season jumping in with abandon. Then there was the occasional belly flop. Finally he added a spiny, twisty, thing.

He also likes to take things out of the bench seat and put them into the pool, balls, dive sticks, and the like. He spends much time trying to talk his Dad and Mom into wearing child size goggles and face masks, of which, he has no interest in wearing himself.

A couple weeks ago, Honey was trying to teach him to do some of the things our kids did. One of the things was to stand in his hands so he could catapult him forward. He wasn’t buying that so much.

Then last week Beeve tried it again, and he figured it out!


He was SO proud of himself!


He calls this pose The Superman.


He was working hard.


This is his Batman pose. I’m not sure why.


I bet he slept good that night! Beeve probably did too.


After he was finished swimming, I called him over to look at the pictures I had taken. There is not much he likes better than looking at himself in pictures. He was over here doing it all again last night.
