semi-annual full body skin check.
a consequence of tanning bed, oil lathering and sunbathing
sans no sunscreen in my preteens, teens and twenties. 
I didn't have to have spots biopsied today.....only because the location
 that needed a biopsy didn't work well with nursing. 
will return in a few months and twice a year the rest of my life.
dear 16 year old me - a message I wish I had seen years ago!

The boy has discovered headphones. 
He can turn up the volume and the rest of us don't have to listen to beeping,
 chiming, clicking, buzzing and other crazy sounds.

I am joining the 365 challenge of posting one picture a day this year.  It's a fun way to get to know my camera, learn a little bit about photography and document our year with photos.  Most pictures will be from my Canon 50D on Auto.  At some point I hope to switch to manual. 

"Running" in the New Year. 
Short and quick two miles today chasing Nate on his bike.
