I’m having so much fun with this blogfest. You guys have made it all really hard. Here is my next one…short and sweet :)
In the Water
The water in the gulf is as balmy as a bathtub—perfect for swimming.
But the waves are too small, and my boys stand knee deep in the warm salty water with boogie boards in hand and disappointment on their faces.
“It will still be fun,” I say, lifting my giggling daughter over every wave. “You can swim.”
My oldest rolls his eyes. I ignore him. If I responded to every eye roll I’d never get anything done.
“Come on, dude.” My middle son motions for his older brother to follow
“Fine,” he answers and they both paddle on their boards out further from the shore.
I’m still lifting a laughing seven year old over waves when I hear the boys yell.
“Mom! Mom! Look!”

I turn my head just in time to see the first fin break the surface of the water right next to my boys.
I guess tiger sharks like the warm gulf water too.
Hehehehe :) Fun times.
