Live in the Moment

Author Anna Quindlen reminds us not to rush past the fleeting moments. She said: “The biggest mistake I made [as a parent] is the one that most of us make. . . . I did not live in the moment enough. This is particularly clear now that the moment is gone, captured only in photographs. There is one picture of [my three children] sitting in the grass on a quilt in the shadow of the swing set on a summer day, ages six, four, and one. And I wish I could remember what we ate, and what we talked about, and how they sounded, and how they looked when they slept that night. I wish I had not been in such a hurry to get on to the next thing: dinner, bath, book, bed. I wish I had treasured the doing a little more and the getting it done a little less”(Loud and Clear [2004], 10–11).

Central High in Little Rock

Today we went to Little Rock for Zach’s endocrine check up.
We got there a little early so we went by the Central High School National Historic Site
where the Little Rock nine went to school as integration started in the South.

On part of the site they have an old gas station restored. It was pretty cool.

Then we went to Zach’s appointment.
Annnnnd got the best news ever….Zach doesn’t have to take pen shot for 6 months.
They are testing to see if he makes enough GH to maintain his body on his own. :)
