patience is a virtue...

.... and thankfully one that I have. {{most of the time}}

I arrive to pick up the boy at 330-340ish, last bell rings at 345pm. THIS is 1/2 of the traffic for carpool, what you can't see is that there's just as much behind my car, and up there at the school, there is a maze of traffic that twists and turns in 5 loops to pick up kids....

using my 200mm zoom, I can not even tell where my kid is, because I'm still not close enough... and it makes me wish I had a bigger lens for fun moments like this....

finally I find him, and this is a photo zoomed in at 200mm... so I'm still pretty darn far away from him!!

The package (a.k.a. the boy, or Big E) is finally sitting in the car TWENTY minutes after the bell has rang, and we finally made our way to the front of the line.... I suppose these carpool moms/dads must have arrived at 3pm!!!! EEK!! Well, that's my new every afternoon commute and carpool routine.... thank goodness for books, music, and oh yeah, UberTwitter, Facebook BBerry apps and great friends who humor me along the way because they're doing the same thing!!

That's unreal. Hopefully the time will pass alright. Looks like a good kid there and probably worth it. ;)
Happy weekend.
