Madeline pushes her lazy little brother.
My son’s family goes back to Memphis tomorrow, unofficially halfway across America, and leaves me with some pretty good photos of our time at Thanksgiving, 2017.
I like these quick intense visits, though I would really like having them around more, so Madeline and I could hang out and Evan and I could talk football. But, as Ev says, “It is what it is.” And what it is now is these photos.

Maddie hit the deck, but later skated quite well.
Evan liked the little penguin.
