So I had to chaperone Academic Travel, and while I was gone, Lucas learned to walk on his own. Yes, he was almost there. Yes, he was already barely holding on to our fingers when he walked. Yes, he was at his grandmother's house when it happened. But the fact remains that I was away and missed on of the major milestones in my little son's life. WALKING.
I do realize that every day is a milestone. That walking is only a big deal because of the Kodak commercials and cliches. But when I think about, I still tear up!
