Today I realized that five times a week Matthew and I go on a 10 minute adventure on the way to school. We drive by the Springfield mall, metro (see pic), hospital, a waterfall, and a lake with ducks before arriving at his school. He usually lists these as we pass and today he added a new phrase as we drove by the metro: "go pick-o daddy!" We had to pick up John there a few times last month when his car was in the shop and Matthew really enjoyed that, and now associates it with daddy being at work. I realized when you're not late and stressed (as we often are) you can take the time to appreciate the little things in life like our exciting 6 mile drive to school.
