Elin Nordegren -- My Kids Need Protection

1/8/2010 9:15 AM PST
Elin Nordegren took her two kids out on a shopping trip near her Florida mansion yesterday -- under the watchful eye of a personal security team.

With Tiger Woods still nowhere in sight, Elin took 2-year-old Sam and 11-month-old Charlie out to a Windermere shopping center along with two bodyguards.

FYI -- Elin's still not wearing her wedding ring.
