kids and pools

We had a friend of ours lose their little boy to the bottom of the pool. As it gets to be summer we need to keep a close eye out on our kids. It is a horrible feeling as a parent to know your child died in fear. I just pray for this family every day, because I know it would kill me if something happened to one of my boys.

I am in the office this week and out again the next two weeks to Las Vegas for convention land. yikes this town scares the hell out of me. mo mo meetings..

How sad, it only takes a minute of looking away... thank you on behalf of parents everywhere for the reminder.
Hey, and don't work too hard!

I often think about how tragic it would be to lose a child that way. It is why I won't build a pool yet even though the summers here are brutal.

My mom is the youngest of 7. When she was little one of her brothers drowned @ a lake, he panicked while his legs wrapped in seaweed. Today, my mom does not know how to swim BUT she enrolled us into swimming classes (my bro n I) very young. Some fears create good things. I am sorry to hear about your froend's loss, so tragic.
