The Champions
Well we weren't really the champions, nor is this banner for us, but my kickball team did place third on Sunday and, considering past performance, I consider that a victory. Apparently I take kickball far to seriously as I've managed to incur a shin injury that causes my ankle to swell after standing on it. I don't remember having these sorts of troubles when playing kickball as a kid...

And congrats to Fayetteville High for being state champions at something. Your victory was praiseworthy enough for a sign, but not quite good enough to deserve a unique sign commemorating the event. I hope you at least got orange slices and capri-sun after the game.

King of the Mountain
I don't often post pictures of people, and even less often of family, but I just like this shot that much.

I had kind of forgotten about this picture - mainly because it wasn't planned and I was firing off shots like there was no tomorrow. I had other pictures of family from the trip but they were all staged.

Really it's the candidness (is that a word?) of the shot that I like so much. In fact, I'm pretty sure this my favorite picture of my family (although I can't decide if I like the HDR version or the original version better). This was shot on our first day in Ireland in a city just north of Dublin. We had all been hiking around in different areas and for some reason met on this hill. Unplanned, unsynchronized, and better because of it.

I'm pretty sure there was an impromptu game of king of the mountain right after...
