“Mommy, please, PLEASE, can I go swimming?  It’s so hot, and Lulu’s already in the pool.  PLEASE ?”

“I think that’s a great idea, Levi!”  “Here you go Lulu!”

“AHHHH!  This is great.  I love to float! “

And all the children and the Mommies, and the Aunts, and the Uncle, and the Lulu got into the pool to play.  Pop and Gigi watched from the side.

Well, it seems that all eyes are on Little Levi !


“Hello!  Are y’all forgetting about someone…waaaay over here…..all alone ?”

“I just don’t understand it, Finn.  They used to all watch ME !  And, now all they do is play with that baby .  It’s not right, I tell you…I was FIRST!!!”

“What’s that?  Do what?  You did that with Alex and YOU got to be the leader?  Yeah!  that’s what I want…to be the leader!  Thanks, Finn !”

“Yeah !!! This is more like it !  Who’s riding high, now?  Uncle Alex,  don’t I look great up here ?   Finn, who? “

And they all played and swam with the smart and cunning John Thomas at the helm.

“Hey, Levi, Don’t be mad.  When YOU are the BIG BOY, YOU can be the leader!”

“HA ! HA ! HA !…I’m ALWAYS gonna be the BIG BOY!  Don’t tell, Ree.  Shhhhhhhh…”
