Joy

Downtown Portland, Oregon
year 2, day 208

Today was one of those days where finding time for pictures was difficult to say the least. I began by arguing with my children that a 7:30 am orthodontist appointment was not going to kill them and took them to that appointment. After the appointment I could not take André's complaining about feeling crappy any longer so I called and make a doctors appointment for him (he has been feeling poorly since Friday) and then took Thierry to school. André came with me to the office until we could leave for his 11:30 appointment where it was determined that it was most likely a virus and therefore there was nothing we can do but wait it out. Grrrrr.

So I bought him some lunch and then dropped him at home and went back to work. To bring a little happiness into the day I post a shot taken last Saturday from our walk around downtown Portland. Again I break my rule of putting up someone else's child but she was so dang cute running through the fountain.

edit: crop, a little HDR, conversion to B&W and a bit of boost
She is very cute and joyful and this is a great picture. Sorry about your day though
