hearing and the deaf swimming together

Does anyone else's kids do this when they don't want to hear their siblings? My kids are constantly sporting dangling coils these days as the cabin fever sets in. Can't we all just get along?
Pool fun w/cousin Kendall

This is when the hearing child is the minority!! Had a fun day swimming in the pool with the kids.

Glad to see the pool is up and running! Looks like a lot of fun!

Nolan had discovered that if he plugs his ears, he is totally deaf (he goes from a 50dB threshold to something like 75dB with the conductive component). He spent a long time in the car plugging his ears, then unplugging them with a look of amazement. Let's just hope that he doesn't figure out how to use that when I'm trying to lecture him, lol!

Not only does Brayden pull his coils off when he's tired of Kenzee, he also does it in crowds and when we're getting on to him. He also mastered the eyes cover up so he doesn't have to read our lips or see us sign.
