Super Heros!

I make it habit of checking in to see what photographic challenge the Shutter Sisters have posted -- not that I've been a very active participant of late. Today's theme was Superhero and just as I was wondering if there was some way to get my little rug rats to pose for me, they slapped on the bike helmets and began racing around the house in a dump truck. There's a word for that. Wait. It'll come. Um. Fortuitous! 

Yesterday I bought a doodle book for Big D. He's quite the budding artist! which is exciting for me as I have still to master the stick person. Anyway, one of the fun prompts was to draw a picture of his hero. He said that Jesus was his hero . . . the sweetness and innocence of his response was touching. Of late, I've been feeling a bit of spiritual ambiguity but regardless of my uncertainty I couldn't ask for a more noble and admirable hero for my child to look up to. Sure beats the pants off of Sponge Bob!
