hearing things

Though there are some who might argue the point...

to me it just may be that the very best thing ever

is to hear your fourteen-year-old son singing Newsies in the basement.

Next favorite moment is probably
 the joy of walking down to the basement

and finding aforementioned fourteen-year-old son

listening to the scriptures 

while doing a P90X ab workout.

We just passed mid-terms.  Grades are coming due. 

Favorite moment of the day?

When a little sweetie of mine came up, sporting the greatest look of pride and joy, and told me, "I just turned in ALL of my assignments!  Except some of them."
