{POTD} Precious Moments

My friend Jen over at Shutter Sisters is celebrating her son’s eighth birthday today.  Indeed the years do seem to fly by as your kids get older.  One day your baby girl is celebrating her third birthday with new toys and the next she’s old enough to entertain and babysit her younger brother.  And next week she’ll be 16!  In a blink of an eye nothing is the same.  Thank goodness we have the ability to capture those precious moments on film so that the memories can live on a little longer.

Indeed those days of childhood do pass quickly.   So what moments in time have you frozen?  If your not already a Shutter Sister, click on over there and give them a try.  I’m positive you’ll find it a rewarding experience.

I hope that you will bear with me as I brag about my daughter getting an Honor Roll Award tonight for having a GPA above 3.0. And to think I just registered her to start college classes in a few weeks, while she is still in high school. Somebody pinch me I must be dreaming!

Just follow this link, if you would please. After a few hours and several attempts to embed this video, I have settled for this link as I am extremely tired.

Picture of the Day 5/26/09

Last Thursday my daughter came home complaining that she injured her right ring finger why playing flag football at PE.  I had her ice it as it did not appear broken and we splinted it to keep it from getting bumped.  On Friday she got sent up to see the scholl nurse who looked at it and said it could either be dislocted or broken.

So off to the emergency room we go Friday afternoon of a holiday weekend.  Wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be.  As for my daughter’s finger, well she managed to shatter the bone on her right ring finger between the 2nd and 3rd knuckles.  I bring this up today and share pictures because I had to wait until today to follow up with the orthopedic surgeon because of the holiday.  And see he is extremely busy, I can’t get her in to see the doctor until next Monday.

Hey, at least she still has her thumbs for texting.  Heaven forbid she couldn’t text!
