"Derek ran ahead, kicking a can, while Nikki dawdled behind doing cartwheels."
I know, I was supposed to be taking a break from Illustration Friday and doing my fine artwork, and I am working on it, but I had to do this one, it was soooo what my kids were like when they were little. Derek was the hare and Nikki was the tortoise and I was in the middle. "Derek slow down! Nikki, hurry up, Derek's getting too far ahead!" A simple walk could be so stressful, it was crazy! It's funny, though, now that they older, I miss our tortoise and the hare walks.
