Where's my scooter?

Yesterday I bought the 3 older kids new scooters. As I unpacked each scooter from the box and unfolded it Baby Lu cried, "Mine, mine, mine!" Then when she looked around and realized that the 3 scooters had all been taken by the big kids and that there were no more scooters to unpack from boxes, she became inconsolable. I hadn't realized until that point that she really thought she was going to get a scooter. Silly me, I was thinking 18 months was a little young for a scooter. One of the kids had the idea to let her try Twinkle Toes' old one, so I adjusted the height of the handle bars for her and let her have it. I was surprised when I saw this...

Look at the concentration! She knows how to assume the proper position from watching her big brothers and sisters. She was quite apprehensive about actually scooting, though. I had to put down the camera and help her along. She's certainly not one to be left out of the fun. I don't think she knows she's only 1.

I'm an on-the-run mom to 6 kids who studied and taught exercise science in a previous life. I love all things running, nutrition, and health-related. I usually run at zero dark thirty in the morning and am often quite hungry before, during, and after my run, but I live a rich, full, blessed life with my children, family, and friends. My faith in God is my anchor, and looking to Him and His promises allows me to live fully even when life circumstances are difficult. While running gives me an appetite, my desire is to hunger and thirst for righteousness more than for physical food.
