I don't know what it is with me and not liking/willing/trying to arrive early somewhere. Am I afraid that the time will be wasted or that I would be bored or that I would have to occupy my kids with something longer than necessary? I don't know. Probably a combination of these things. The fact is, that when I happen to make it somewhere earlier than needed, I actually like it a lot. I relax on the road; I relax when we get there. I am able to transition and focus on whatever it is I came there for.
Today was another example of me and just in time. My sister, my kids and I finally made it out to take some fall pictures. Unlike many other people, we waited until almost middle of November to do it. I spent about an hour choosing and ironing clothes and dressing the kids only to completely forget that 45 Degree F is actually fairly cold and I should have spent that time choosing some decent coats, hats and scarfs for them. We ended up taking a few decent shots. It started raining soon after we left and the forecast for the rest of the week is more rain. In other words, we took these just.in.time.
My hotblooded girl did not complain about not having a jacket.
With a soon to be big brother. He can hardly wait.
Now and then (Fall of 2010).
The four of us.
The five of us ;)
Thanks, sis. We did it again! Just in time :)
