These are My Children

I am the fortunate mother of teenagers. My friend's mother told me that when children are young they break your back and when they are old they break your heart. In my case, they haven't broke it, just given it major palpitations. I suppose it is their incredible energy, and sense of themselves, and wanting to carve out their own path in life when I am no longer in total control - of course, I never was.
That "shark and merman?" picture is so representative of those two it is cracking me up.

I can't believe how grown up they both look. I love the pictures. I hope you see when I go to Utah, we'll have to plan a meeting!
