Shadow Puppets

This school year, Benajmin starts school at 7:20am.  This means we must leave the house by 6:15 at the latest.  Right now, the sun is just rising as we're leaving the house.  Today, as we were travelling on the interstate headed South, the sun was coming up and shining through the car, casting a shadow of our car on the cement retainer wall to our right.  Benjamin began waving his hand and then did a little shadow puppet show and then got really tickled about it.  This might be one of those things that "you had to be there", but if you know me and B, you might also get a chuckle.  ;)

The upside of leaving so early is there are rarely any backups on the interstate.  There is a lot more traffic than I expected there to be this early, but at least we're moving at a good pace.  The other upside is that I get to leave the office at 4:30 to go pick B up.  Of course, by then, there IS a lot of traffic, but we're not on a deadline to get somewhere, except home where we want to be.

  1. I read a book many years ago named "My Shadow Ran Fast". I think I should read it again if I can find it since I can't remember what it's message was. Or maybe I'll wait for a new book to come out called "My Shadow on the Wall" by Benjamin T.
