Running up to avoid being late to school.
Down to play Barbies in the basement.
Up to sit at the dinner table.
Down to watch a movie with friends.

Watching Oman learn how to go up and down on these stairs--the stairs I grew up on, is yet another thing that is so simple, but means so much to me. Loved being able to watch my mom guide him down each step--just as she did with me--literally and figuratively.
Are there stairs/floors/doors that you know are being occupied in your house/home you grew up in, just by the noise they make?
Enjoy a glass of Beringer White Zinfandel for tonight's Virtual Wine Club.
