Harding's teacher encouraged him to keep a journal this summer and it has been a great quiet activity for him while Shelby naps in the afternoon. It has also been fun seeing his interpretation of things--especially his and Trip's encounter with the lifeguard at North Myrtle Beach. We were not aware of the rule that you can't swim past waste deep. Those of you who know Trip well can guess how he felt about an authority figure telling him how far out he was allowed to swim with his son (especially since Harding had on his life jacket). Trip and Harding managed to follow the rules the rest of our vacation and they didn't get into trouble again--but the experience obviously made an impression on Harding.
