The College Peeps are Back in Town

College is out for the summer, which means all of our college peeps will be stopping by to hang out, play cards, or both. A few of them stopped by last night, and I did manage to get a picture or two. Won't be long before the high school peeps get their taste of freedom.

Kyle at Fort Leonard Wood

We drove to Springfield on Wednesday to move Alex back home from Missouri State University. While passing the exit for Fort Leonard Wood, which is where Kyle is currently stationed, we discovered that the base is only 3 miles South of I-44, so we stopped in and said hello.

Who couldn't love that face? Cody is the best dog in the whole world, and that's no exaggeration

A Walk in my Shoes

Should you find yourself walking
in my shoes there won't be much talking
stepping timidly the shoe will guide
light cascading on its unassuming side
cotton sewn lace
holds the tongue in place
held up by its foundation
worn by lasting duration
though cautious and cognizant
each stride is self confident
with care each seam
sewn fluidly like a stream
warm interior burning
with creative energy yearning
to build, shape, construct
brought to heel with fear of self destruct
