The pic doesn’t show it well, but #3 got his first shiner!  Thankfully it wasn’t from a fight or argument.  It was an accidental collision in the swimming pool.  The funny thing is he didn’t mention anything about it and I had no idea until Sunday morning at church.

Morning Events

Daily Pic – January 27th, 2015

Three events that dominated my morning commute:

  • Getting gas at $1.99 per gallon – yay!
  • A terrible accident that took nearly an hour to get past – glad everyone survived!
