Yes, I realize that I've become a dreadful blog slacker.
I do have an excuse though!
I maintain 3 blogs now so its hard to update them all every day.
If you don't know which other ones they are (yet)
http://akatseyeview.blogspot.com (photoblog where I put images Chanda captures)
http://iphone-city.blogspot.com (a photoblog where I put all pics taken with my iPhone of the city Portland where I work)
Now for other news...
I was riding bikes with MiniWarrior up and down our street the other day. He has officially out grown a little kids bike and now rides a 22 speed mans bike. (sigh).
We got to the top of the hill at the end of the street and before I could give my usual Mom admonishment of "look out for cars"... he paused and looked seriously at me.
"Mom, when I ring my bike bell, that means that you need to look out for cars, OK?"
"Good idea, Son. I'll ring mine if I see one too."
"No, Mom. I'll do it. You leave it to me. I'll protect you."
I looked at my not so little man staring across at me with adult eyes and felt a melting and a twinge inside me.
God, he's growing up before my eyes
I find myself clinging to each childhood moment with him now for they are swiftly disappearing into the wonderful man he is becoming.
