He did pretty good considering he had to keep coming up for a breath. But, it wasn't long before he was exhausted. Todd too, was worn out from having to keep close to Nathan and carrying him "piggy back" when he got tired or needed to adjust his fins or goggles.
It didn't take Nathan long to get tired.

Day two proved to be better than day one. Todd and I were able to convince Nathan to use his mask and snorkel. He consented and loved it. On day one, Stuart Brown, found a tiger conch shell and Nathan fell in love with it. So, on day two, he was on a mission to find his own. Well, on day two they arrived back at the boat with our very own tiger conch shell. According to Nathan, he spotted it but he didn't know how to dive down and get it, so he told his daddy to go get it. I don't think the real story goes quite like that but anyway we are now the proud owners of a tiger conch shell and Nathan couldn't be happier.

And a first for Nathan's Ma:
Here is my first attempt at videoing with my digital camera. The girl next to Nathan is Olivia Brown. I think he was kind of sweet on her because he told me one night that he had gotten two hugs from her that day. At the retreat back in August, he was sweet on Olivia's younger sister Sophia. I guess he decided he would rather his girlfriends be more mature.
