Sometimes something just hits you funny and you can't ever get it out of your head.
At the beginning of the school year, we bought new backpacks for The Buddies. Every morning, as I follow them up the sidewalk to the bus stop, I can't help but grin. The image of my little boys scuttling along always reminds me of a little trio of turtles. The backpacks are turtle green and a little large for the boys. In fact, they are so large that they nearly hit the backs of their knees. All I can see are these "green shells" with heads bobbing atop, and arms and legs flailing out from each side.
Now that the weather is changing we'll start driving to the bus stop so we can wait in the car. I'm going to miss our little trek up the hill. I'm sure gonna miss those little turtles!
