I remember when I was pregnant with our first child, one of the things we looked forward to was how having kids would make our lives more interesting because we would learn about things we never would have thought to learn about on our own.
And it turned out to be true. Through our children we have learned about all sorts of interesting stuff, like softball and basketball and hockey and tennis and environmentalism and what its like to be a mascot and philosophy and film making and gay rights and women's studies and the Green Party ... and now, skydiving.
Our daughter went skydiving last weekend!
Apparently, just about anybody can skydive these days in a "tandem" set-up -- basically, strapped to an experienced skydiver so you don't have to take a hundred hours of training first.
But this time, I must say, I'm glad we didn't know until we saw her Facebook page afterwards.
