We love our neighborhood pool. John Isaac has really excelled this year on the swim team. Our coach says he has the perfect body type: long with a bit of body fat. My friends and I joke that it's because he has Hobbit feet as flippers.
He is at least a couple of inches taller than most his age. In the picture below, he is a year younger than the boy on the right.
A few weeks into the season, I noticed that his muscles were becoming more pronounced (and that he was eating twice his normal amount.) About that time he declared to me that he has a "sick pack." When I asked what that was he said, "You know, the four muscles here in my stomach." I tried not to laugh as I corrected him.
The team tie dyed their shirts. John Isaac is in the middle of the middle row.
