Day 67(17) Growing Up

March 6th: This picture was taken today as my eldest child was walking away to go do his job. He and a lot of other middle school boys got various jobs at the Tiger Relays today and tomorrow. Zach and his running buddy, Ryan (the #3 in the foreground) have the exciting job of setting starting blocks for all of the hurdle races. I was there to drop off some cash, bring his cap and get some sunscreen on that boy. He leaned in the car window for me to put the sunscreen on and kept saying "hurry up mom." I guess I should have given him a big smack on the lips and he really would have died.

I know this is all part of growing up for him. In some ways it makes me sad but in other ways it brings me joy to see this kid that used to be so unsure of himself socially, growing into a confident young man and socializing very easily with his peers.

Day 66(16) Sweet Tears

March 5: I am forgoing a picture of mine today in order to post this video. This is former President George HW Bush in a press conference after his wife, Barbara's open heart surgery. You hear the love in his voice for her. If only we can all be so lucky. This is truly one of the sweetest things I have ever seen. These are two of my favorite people. They have a true love for one another as well as a true love of Jesus.
