I think this is good evidence that I won’t have to worry about Amaya being an annoying Queen Bee in high school. (yes, I’m still worried about rebellious sass, but probably only because I have it coming.)

I am quite content to raise geeks after being a high school English teacher.

And I am quite content to see that the apple does not fall far from the tree.

(yes, those are her bite marks at the top of her helmet.)

Bite marks are perfect for identification purposes. I'm sure that nobody has the exact same bite as she does.

yes - may we all be blessed with nerds.

Metta: certainly no one would ever mistake that helmet for theirs!
Amen. Amen.

Is it just me, or does she look like she's been pod-racing?

heelarious. She is so darn cute.

But I have to know . . . WHY do bikers wear spandex? There are a lot of bikers in Utah and they all wear spandex. I think there should be a new commandment.

Thou shalt not witness other members of your ward wearing spandex. Especially your bishop.

Mariko said...

Pete: Totally.
CTD: She's actually not wearing spandex. It's even nerdier than spandex. It's one of those sun block swimsuits. Super cool.
Spandex is all about peer pressure. I guess you choose your peers in this case.
