Have you seen Wordle yet?

Wordle says on it's site:
"Wordle is a toy for generating “word clouds” from text that you provide. The clouds give greater prominence to words that appear more frequently in the source text. You can tweak your clouds with different fonts, layouts, and color schemes. The images you create with Wordle are yours to use however you like. You can print them out, or save them to the Wordle gallery to share with your friends. "

It's fun. I haven't tried it yet, but plan to asap....

The Negligent Blogger

Maybe that's what I should call this blog...the Negligent Blogger..... I've been way too busy lately...swimming along in the Northern Virginia pace of life. School has been over for a few weeks now and I'm enjoying having the kids home, but trying to juggle things at a different pace.
This image is years old..and seems to fit the seasonal turning of children growing...mine are growing much too I'm treasuring my summer with them. (the scan of the image is a bit funky, but I don't feel like scrounding around in my files for the better scan/image right now)
