the diving gene

By the end of last summer, Oscar was going off the diving board like a pro.

He started this summer unsure of it again, but I’m happy to report that he’s no longer afraid. Sunday (after gaining some confidence by realizing he can touch in the shallow end, and warming up by jumping in from the side) he decided he was ready to give it a try again.  And again.  And again.  Seriously, he was nonstop for over an hour.
These are some serious tricks that all have names…
1. Run and Jump

2. Pencil

3. Ninja

4. Superman (my favorite)

We had to all but drag him from the pool Sunday evening, and he’s talked about the diving board since.  I think it is safe to say he’s inherited the diving gene from Pops, who impressed Oscar with his swan dives and back flips Sunday afternoon.
