Several years ago, we visited Kyle's family in Kansas City for Christmas.
One evening, while we were enjoying time at Kyle's brother's house, Matt and Liz's oldest son - then an only child and just over two - was running loops of the first floor of their home, chanting:
"I Running! ... I Running! ... I Running!"
He was at the end of his day, using every last ounce of energy to stay in motion a few seconds longer.
Recently, this scene flashed vividly to mind. Olive was enjoying some time outside. She looked to Kyle, and said,
"I Running! Fast!"
We both grinned.
