Then a nose plug. Finally, the five-year-old eased into the pool one cautious step at a time, gripping the edge the whole way.
“Aren’t ya coming?” asked Zeke’s new friend.
“Ready or not! Here I come!”
Ethan smiled at way Timothy ducked, covering his head as Zeke charged the edge and launched right over the other boy’s head, entering the pool with a mighty splash.
