It’s Tuesday and while I’ve started several posts in between it’s been a week since I actually published anything. Of course, I’m not telling you anything you don’t know but I myself wonder how a week can slip by without my realizing it.

If not blogging, then what did I do all week? In summary, I spent all of last week sweating. Literally. My oldest son played nine basketball games last week, all without air conditioning, a modern convenience I am now all the more grateful for.
We sweated over the weekend too, in Memphis for some bicycle races despite a heat advisory and 100 degree plus temps. My two oldest boys competed in a road race and a time trial on Saturday and then my oldest son raced in a criterium Sunday. They did well though the heat was some kind of brutal.
Look, I have pictures!
My two cyclists before the time trial Saturday evening:

My oldest in the criterium Sunday morning. The corners make me nervous!

My oldest sprinting to the finish but couldn’t quite get there first.

Are y’all impressed or what?

And while I’m being all technologically advanced and posting pictures and stuff, Sandra tagged me for a photo meme. The rules are:
1) Go to your photo files… Select the 6th photo folder or album.
2) Select the 6th photo in that folder/album.
3) Post that photo along with the story behind it.
4) Then challenge some blog friends to do the same!

Here’s my number four son, Christmas 2001. He was two and enamoured with all things Blue (Note the Thinking Chair). What a cutie!

If you feel like posting, consider yourself tagged!

In other news, this is my SIX HUNDRED AND FIRST blog post, if you could call it that.

  4. Corners always make me nervous… both in my approach and in the "what's up ahead" sense.Thanks for checking in. As for weeks and where they go, when you figure that one out, let me know. Mine are spending like a blur…peace~elaine
