4th folder, 4th picture

Finally getting around to this. I was really feeling the pressure after seeing hundreds of other bloggers posting whatever picture is fourth in their fourth folder, or whatever other number combos were going on in the blogosphere. (Actually, I just really didn't have an idea of what else to post today, so this seemed like a good plan.)


It's Sophie playing basketball at my parents' house this summer. It actually looks like she's doing a bang up job at dribbling the ball, but don't let the photo fool you. The ball bounced out into the street while she blithely chased it in her bare feet with Joel close behind to save her life if necessary. And it's often necessary with Sophia.

I'm usually thankful for this kid's energy. Sometimes I'm just jealous of it. And I'm always exhausted by it.

  2. Someone once told me that kids have so much energy from draining it from us.

  3. You put into words exactly how I feel raising Laci! I just keep telling myself, the Lord will use every ounce of energy He gave her. While there are days when I feel like I'm going to pull all my hair out, and I blame the grey hairs I found on my head on her, I admire her capacity, amd like you, often feel jealous of it.

    Kids teach us so much, don't they?

    And I am so irritated right now. I posted a new post over an hour ago, and the RSS feed hasn't pulled it. I don't know what's going on. Grrrr.

  11. I suspect no matter what combo used (4th of 4th or 5th of 10th or 9th of heaven) the pic would be adorable.
