Pool fun and ice cream on the first day of summer

We went to the pool with the kids' new waterproof HAs...after David's first jump in, he came up yelling, "Mommy! I can hear a sound when I shoot in!" Then I realized...he was hearing the rush and gurgle of the water around his head for the very first time! It was exciting and a little sad all at the same time -- but mostly exciting!

When it was almost time to leave the pool anyway, we heard the ice cream truck nearby, so we hurried to get home and get our money out before the truck made it to the back of the neighborhood and drove back past our house -- it was a great way to end a great day!

Oh, I can feel the satisfaction of a good swim and then a treat together, so happy for you!

What a great thing to be able to hear those little sounds we all take for granted! So happy for you all! :-)
