Ice Cream Truck

We used to have an ice cream man come each week to our street.
This year he never came, but lo and behold another ice cream truck came the last week of summer break. Boy were we glad to see him! It was hot and muggy and we were stuck indoors. (We were getting our house roof replaced.  No playing in our yard for a week as the shingles and nails came raining down.)

Small things like an ice cream treat from the music playing truck makes for a wonderful summer memory.

Caleb conquers his fear of the diving board

Months of back to back swim lessons are paying off. 
Caleb just passed his swim class with flying colors.
He has been leery of jumping off the diving board for a long time.
On the last class he finally worked up the courage to jump off.
 His teacher was so good. She wasn't willing to take no for an answer.
She simply told him to rise to the challenge. He did!
Here is the video  ( he is the second boy) :
