Driving boys up into the hills yesterday so they could mountain bike home, the world seemed to glow and frolic.



They took off at lightening speed like homing pigeons - but not before calling out over their shoulder ... "You're the coolest mom there is! Who else would strap a bike rack to the car and drive us out here?"



And all became very quiet and holy inside me - their words are the reverence of a lifetime. Ah! To be the coolest mom in the eyes of teenage boys! :)

You are the coolest Mom. That is a beautiful set of words to be graced with. Sometimes at this age our children leave us for a bit.If you aren't busy today, could you drop me off on the river?

Try to remember this day when they are crabbing at you for making them do their homework. ;)

It delightfully balances out the burning bits of paper flying out the window last year, does it not?

"Coolest mom" j'y ai eu droit hier en prenant le petit chemin du McDrive et en commandant deux portions de frites bien chaudes, croustillantes à l'extérieur et moelleuses à l'intérieur. Mmh!

That, my friend is a special seed that you planted in him by being the loving mother that you are!

We reap what we sow :)

What a compliment. You don't hear that everyday. They will remember you did that for them the rest of their lives.
