During the fifteen minutes it takes to put on shoes

The last step before leaving the house to take the girls to school is wrangling Marlo and getting her shoes strapped on.

I had the camera out this morning because the light in the kitchen nook was so good, and Leta asked if she could play around with it. This is one of the shots she fired off. I’m so glad she captured the dimple.
