The offspring are fortunate to have inherited their father's long legs and athletic abilities.
This afternoon, my firstborn is boarding a bus up to Swan River with her soccer team to play in the provincials. They've been ranked #1 in the province.
Though I badly want to bump along on that entire seven hour drive (sincerely), listening to teen-aged banter and taking in some different scenery... alas, I must remain here and make more money so she can keep taking more trips. But how I wish I was getting on that bus at 2:00 pm today!
It's a glorious, grateful feeling to be proud of my kids.
So, get out there kids, and (don't) break a leg...
