Proud Mom Moment (I love this photo)

My blog is mostly about my art, with just a little life thrown in, and I'm happy with that.  I have noticed though that some of my favorite blog posts that I read on other blogs are the posts that give me a glimpse into the blogger's real life.  So, I'm trying a bit of that today.  Let me know what you think.
The photo up top is from Wednesday.  In the morning, I did three loads of laundry, scrapped these tone-on-tone cardstock layouts for the Shimelle class, picked up the house a little and watched reruns of The West Wing on Bravo. At 1:30, I headed off to drive DS Henry to his baseball game.  Proud Mom moment #1: He was the starting pitcher for their first league game. After the game, we headed off to the High School Library for the Awards Ceremony for the High School soccer team.  Proud Mom moment #2: He was named MVP for the Offense (also named to First Team All League). Today's picture is of Henry with Andres (Defensive MVP) and Rual (Most Improved). I love the fact that he's at the soccer awards in his baseball uniform.  I also love the fact that, if you look closely, you can see that he's wearing his favorite Obama t-shirt under his jersey.  Look closer still, and over his right eye, you'll see a scab.  He got hit in the head with a baseball last week pitching batting practice at lunchtime . . . he was back on the mound for the last preseason scrimmage the following day.  The boy's definitely a gamer.
Here's some photo links that will give you a peek into my life outside the blogosphere - things I find appealing because of who I am IRL.
First, a great photo site called Caliber that Nancy of SquirrelyArt turned me on to.  It's primarily photos of San Francisco, and they're all awesome. IRL, I live 20 miles south off San Francisco, so they all speak to me.
Second, this slideshow of hilarious help wanted signs from the Huffington Post.  I think you may know that IRL I'm a law professor who specializes in labor and employment law.  So, this sort of think really appeals to me.
Finally, here's a couple of pictures of my office.  I teach at the University of San Francisco School of Law, and I hang my art work (the middle two pieces) in my office!
