Numbers

It was 93° here today. 

Today

April 26

That just doesn't happen around here. The last time it was even close to that warm on this date was in 1990 when it got up to 92°

It was 90° yesterday. It's supposed to be 90° again tomorrow. And 94° Tuesday.My son's number was 130 today. 

He completed a triathlon in the 93°.

He finished 4th in his age group.

 (I'm proud of him for just participating in this event.)Three events really. He was smiling every time I saw him swim/bike/run past me. He's like that.Kiran clapped every time he saw his dad.And I smiled watching Kiran with his mom . . .And his dad . . .And the knowledge that soon these three will become four.There should be a medal for that too.
