Random picture moment

I was going to volunteer today, but the kids are testing--the big see-how-the-schools-are-performing kind of testing. I roll my eyes at those tests. So there! But my morning is less event-filled and that is a good thing. I might even be able to go grocery shopping. Just this morning, Matt complained that there was nothing good to put in his lunch for school. I rolled my eyes at him (lots of eye-rolling already today and it's not even 9:30 a.m.), but he's got a point. The yogurt is gone, the cheese sticks are gone, the carrots are almost gone, there are no "cuties" left (tangerines), and the bananas were finished off yesterday. Must replenish the fridge.

Have a random older photo to amuse yourselves while I'm at the grocery store and the gym. This was taken in August of 2006 in Itasca on a footbridge alongside a very narrow (we're talking 3 feet wide) Mississippi river. Matt and Hayley were enjoying the river barefoot and ran down the bridge in anticipation of further excitement (either from the river or their own invention). To me, the picture is the essence of the transitory and fleeting nature of youth and exuberance.

Awww, how sweet. Won't it be sad when that's all gone? i can't believe my "baby" is 3. It won't be long, and I'll be going to my kids' perfomances of "Grease". Sniff, sniff!
