Norristown High's swim team has a waterproof camera and some serious aquatic dance moves.
Step aside James Franco and Katy Perry, you guys aren't the only Carly Rae Jepsen fans with a camera. The Norristown Area High School swim team recently donned their swimsuits and did a bit of un-synchronized swimming to the Canadian pop star's hit Call Me Maybe. The team admittedly has some underwater moves, but when Call-ing Me Maybe on the internet, it's hard to be Jimmy Fallon and the Roots. (To be fair, they did have Ms. Jepsen helping.) Thanks to YouTube user Colleen Kolb for posting the great vid.

Our Montco Mommy's little ones have found a new all-consuming pastime.
With the temperatures climbing last week, our family has already started seeking relief. We have traditional Irish skin tones so we have a limited list of sunny-day activities. We can’t bask in the glorious sun all day long, even if we’d like to, as we only have two main skin tones: albino and burnt. Despite the needs for frequent shade, we are test "swimming" a new idea this summer. Our kids have been begging for a pool since, well since they could beg. Both have had swim lessons and can minimally swim enough not to lose their lives if they feel in. To be honest, we’d probably have to take a third mortgage out to afford one, but I wouldn’t put it past us if it made us all happy. However, before we made a final decision, we thought it’d …
