He takes after his father

As a young kid, B would give his mother heart failure doing crazy things on the diving board at their neighborhood pool, so she signed him for the diving team to give him a constructive place to do all his tricks. He dove competitively through high school and then dove for The University of Texas, where he was a member of two NCAA National Championship teams, and the U.S. National Team. When his diving career ended, he coached age-group diving for a few years here in Austin.

I think Campbell will be following in his dad's footsteps.

And for the record, the wall behind Campbell used to be covered with the cute alphabet cards, but the kids pulled them all off and used them like frisbees. So I had to put them out of reach. Sigh.

Nice form. :) Love that the bed is perfectly spring-y too. Our kids beds are springy like that, but our king bed is memory foam which doesn't make for a good trampoline. Sorry, Kids.
