Last night, Emmett and Luke were playing with glow-sticks as they fell asleep. Once they're asleep, I'll usually try to find the glow-sticks and put them in the freezer - it makes them last through another bedtime of play. Yesterday, Emmett had a glowing necklace on (tricky!) but when I went into the room he stirred and picked his head up just enough for me to quickly slip the necklace off of him.

A bit later when David and I were getting ready for bed, Emmett came into our room and in a confused voice said, "My glow-sticks have simply vanished!" He was relieved to hear they were in the freezer and returned to bed. I wonder how long he searched before coming over to tell us...

Today in the bath, Luke wanted to wear his swim goggles. I helped him get them on, and he immediately plunged his face into the water! Luke! Amazing. He told me he was looking at the drain.

Emmett jumped off the diving board today at swimming, and executed a perfect belly flop - belly, chest, legs, and arms all hit the water together. His instructor then spent a little time teaching him to jump in feet first, as his belly was bright red! I think that lesson will sink in easily...
