i found this email in the orphanage in-box this morning:
"My daughters took full advantage of biking to school today. 1st time all year; they should do it every day! W/out the daddy escort. Central has 5 old school bike racks and plenty of space for parking. My girls are going to count at 1st recess to see how many bikes are in the racks. 7.5 block ride one way, or 2 block walk to ride the bus 5.5 blocks."
yippee for happy children!!--the mostly reverend
