eighty-three weeks

eighty-three weeks

Mom. Seriously. It's not that cold. I have flannel pants on. Can I please go outside? It's okay if it's raining. My shoes won't get wet because I'm not wearing any.

eighty-one weeks

eighty-one weeks

Look up in the sky!... It's a bird. It's a plane!

Lucas has this new found fascination with the airplanes that fly over our house everyday. We're on the direct flight path to LaGuardia Airport, so all the inbound connecting flights into New York fly over head just before landing. He hadn't noticed them much before, until our recent trip to Atlanta.

While we were at the airport walking back to our car parked in short term parking, he had a chance to see the inbound flights arriving. With all the loud jets zooming back and forth over us, it was impossible not to notice. I remember having that same fascination as a kid growing up next to the Salinas Municipal Airport. I'd spend hours in our backyard laying on the grass looking up at the sky.

Once I even saw the President's helicopter (Marine One) fly directly over my little house. President Clinton in East Salinas!... I'll never forget it.
