Treyton started it
so Ryker followed suit
Kazie stepped up
and promptly stepped back down
Even Brave Maddie gave it a shot
(Doesn't she look like a graceful ballerina? I love it!)
Kenzie got brave, but wanted some assistance. I was more than happy to oblige:
Kazie decided to try again, but only if I helped her too:
I lifted her up and swung her gently over the water. I let go...
She did not.
Notice the death grip she has on my hands! She started swinging back toward the diving board and my life flashed before my eyes. I thought it was over.
In a last-ditch effort to save myself, I squatted. Fortunately, my posterier outweighs the rest of me and Kazie combined. I maintained my balance, and Kazie lost her death-hold. She plunged into the water and I survived unscathed.
Kazie told me later that when she is older and we try that again, she will probably do the same thing. I told her we will never know because my services are no longer available.
It's a darn good thing she's cute!
