1. Good balance

too, to run with his hands in his pockets. The boys look like they are trying to keep their hands warm.

2. Agreed about the good balance.

I won't run on any hard surface ever again after trying to push start a vehicle about three years ago. I lost my footing, did a faceplant on concrete and broke my right arm just below the elbow. I had to go to the ER because blood was gushing from the bridge of my nose and part of my upper lip was peeled off. I didn't shave for over two weeks due to the lacerations that covered about a quarter of my face. I was on disability from work for over two months while I did rehab. That's why I dig grass!

3. I'm not one to comment on or rec these photos, usually.

But this is photo of a very busy man with the weight of the world taking a few minutes to include play in his life is outstanding. Iconic.

4. I noticed the young man on the left.

 

He appears to wearing his big brother's suit or his parents bought it in anticipation of him growing into it. And the socks? Good choice.

A former colleague of mine flew to D.C. for the inauguration. Before she boarded the airplane, she jokingly asked me if there was anything I wanted her ask the President to do. I answered no, he's got enough on his shoulders without me adding to it.

5. Stole it to add to my collection of President Obama and children

Thanks for posting it.

Every once in a while a start an OP with all the photos of Obama with children that I have. I think it's quite a cool collection. He definitely connects with children, and quite intimately sometimes. It's as if he gives them his undivided attention for a moment and this has been caught many many times.
