The Royal Rangers worked on the Advanced Swimming Merit this morning.
So, this is the conversation that I had with Nathan before we left the house:
"Mom, what kind of pants do you think blow up the best?"
Me: "Straight legged jeans, not the ones that flare at the bottom."
Of course, I really didn't know what I was talking about...Because until just then, I didn't know that you could actually take off your jeans while in a pool, tie them in a knot, blow air into them and use them around your neck as a floatation device to save your life!
But that's what the boys had to do.
And their commander pronounced them all "dead" because, well, they didn't do it too well. : )
They did have fun trying.
They also swam a whole lot of strokes, did some dives and then tried saving each others lives. It turned into a fun morning of fellowship after a fun/exhausting week of VBS.
