Face Flop

Discussion in 'People' started by j_b_l, Jun 11, 2007.

  1. Nick was practicing diving at the pool yesterday...but we couldn't get him to undersand that your hands should go in the water *BEFORE* the rest of your body, not all at the same time. He would face flop in the water, laugh hysterically, and then do it all over again. Pretty soon a half-dozen kids were doing the same thing...it was a riot.

    Thats great:>)))
    I know all had a great time
    Great pic and memories
     
  3. Nice capture. I like the water drops coming down off him as he goes in...

    That looks like what comes next is a loud smack and some red skin... :eek: 
     
  4. He's got great form!!! :biggrin: Head down, toes pointed... Great shot.
     
  5. Yeah, his form is perfect, but you really get the feeling that gravity is about to take over, don't you!
     
  6. John, just don't let him do that from too high up. It gets more painful the higher you are. Cute picture and his form looks great. We used to call them belly flops but face flop will do.
     
  7. Gale, thanks...they grow so fast...nice to have these shots to remind them and us...

    Brian, it really wasn't that painful...he must have done it 20 times...just kept laughing...

    Keith, thanks!

    Mason, yeah...it was great.

    Thanks, Gordon. We'll tell him, but nature will probably do a better job of reminding him...LOL...his belly kind of went in first, then his face...didn't really look like your standard belly flop... :wink:
     
  8. :biggrin::biggrin::biggrin: OUCH! :eek:

    Great shot! It is amazing how much joy our children bring us in the things they do!
     
  10. Graeme, I kept asking him if he was OK, and he just kept giggling...no red face...he loved every minute...

    Yeah, you never know what's around the corner...can't wait for the wrecked car "joy", or the college tuition "joy"... :eek:  :wink:
     
  11. That's gonna hurt!! Nice pic!!

    He has the right idea tho...my son didnt' start like that. Seems like your son just needs a little adjustment and he's got it. Showing him this picture will really show him what he's doing wrong.

    I like it the shot...good one.
     
  18. Yeah, right...you just missed us...I haven't been out to ILP for a while...are you still posting there?

    Hey, thanks...he seems to think he's doing it right...so we've got some work to do...:eek:
