Derek swam in high school. His memories growing up include loving the water. Cole is Derek son through and through, except for his love of swimming pools. Not that Cole doesn't like water. He loves the beach, and walks right into the ocean. But put him in a pool where he loses the sense of any ground beneath his feet, and we enter panic town.
He does loves the little inflatable pool in the backyard. And God bless this little boy, he puts on his life vest. Safety first.
He is as happy as a lark in it.
Happiness is in the little things.
