Last One In Is A Rotten Egg

With a pool in the yard, it was just a matter of time. Guess who took the first swim and now chants “last one in is a rotten egg?”

Is this really a tough quiz?

Once our fencing is finally installed, we will have regular access to the back yard, but not the swimming pool area. Until that time, Hu-Dad closely supervises us to prevent any unexpected swimming. That plan worked great until Sunday when someone took a running leap and dove in.

You do remember Cheoah is the Cherokee word for Otter?

Miss Cheesewhiz didn’t stick a toe inโ€”she leapt through the air and made a dive so spectacular, Olympians would be proud. She came up paddling, headed for the steps and climbed out. When Hu-Dad bent over to make sure she was okay, she shook and shared the cold pool water with him. His appreciation was something to behold.

Ah, the memories of my first swim in the pool.

P.S. – During the photography session for today’s post, Hu-Dad warned her not to repeat the dive.
