Either way, it was a huge confidence booster. Not that he struggles with self-esteem. But we are looking forward to many more meets.

The atmosphere was very encouraging and really fun. I'm so glad our neighborhood has a pool!
Another fun thing about our new neighborhood is the fact that we've been doing a pot-luck every Thursday night in the park just outside the pool's gate. One of the things I took tonight to put on the grill was cabbage.
OK, so I know that everyone who just read that last line is probably gagging. Don't gag until you try it. I was snarling my nose when I first heard it ...but when I tried it... heaven. Seriously.
Coarsely chop a head of cabbage (like in 1/8 sections) and GENEROUSLY apply pats of butter and sprinkle salt on it. Wrap in foil and grill that baby for 30 minutes or so. If it doesn't taste sweet, it's not done - put it back on the grill. Delicious I tell you. Try it. Everyone who tried it couldn't believe how good it was. Just don't tell me it's gross until you try it.
