The "New" Gang

This is what it looks like when the people you've been friends with since
you were children...have children.
(from left-Brenner, Pierce, Sam, Riley, Cohen, Jessica, Carter, Ashley and Kendall)
They ate every hot dog I cooked and most of the Popsicle's.

Tour Of Missouri

I got a chance to see some world class cycling right here in KC. I saw the Tour Of Missouri as the riders rode west on 45 highway, crossing I-435 and then I met a friend in Parkville and watched them scream through on their way back to the Plaza.

Very Cool!!!

Here they are coming towards me as I stand on the I-435 overpass
looking east at 45 Highway.

It was a quick blur and they were

I've always been amazed at the things the support teams do while
hanging out the window of a car!Here is the long line of team cars. We saw more of them than we did of the riders. A guy standing next to me remarked "I sure wouldn't go all the way to France to see that".
Here is the beginning of the big group as they come around the corner in Parkville.
I think that's George Hincapie there in the middle. (He's my favorite)
They zipped around the corner and were gone.

It's Only Been A Week...

Thanks to those of you who check back in hope that I'll post something already!

Just a few quick Tuesday thoughts:

1. Happy Birthday to my little sister - You are one of many great things that happened on September 11...don't let them take your day away.

2. God Bless this great country we live in. I love her with all her faults.

3. When you give your kid a new antibiotic, sleep lightly that first night. We ran a little guy the other night with a severe allergic reaction to a new antibiotic.

4. Trying to get 9 high school students to complete a task is a bit like training cats.

5. seems like there was more but I need to get showered and outta here...Petty Girls Do Lunch.
