Jump into the unknown!

On her website,, Suzanne Achtenhagen features the following credo:
Believe in yourself.
Live your dreams.
Jump into the unknown.
Here is Wayne and his friend, Alex, at the conclusion of the Red Hills Kids Triathlon here in Tallahassee today. This moment, from a parent's perspective, rivaled the great moments in sporting history.
Go, Wayne! Go, Alex!

Getting Ready for Soap Box Derby!

This is a picture of Wayne and Wayne working on Wayne's soap box derby car in preparation for the "big race" on June 14, 2008!
Wayne's car, which is a "hand me down," has a big banana on it. You can't miss it in a race!

Gotta Start Somewhere

This is my first post to my blog. I just read "Julie and Julia," though, so I am inspired.

I will soon post pictures of Wayne Kevin putting together his soap box derby car. It's fun to see a 2008 kid doing something so low-tech and having fun.
