Tuesday we had one of those days.
First grader arrives home from school. Kids unanimously decide it’s a great day for the park. First grader calls a friend to join us. Kids grab bikes. I grab wagon and two-year-old. And snacks. We head to said friend’s house to pick her up on the way. Kids ride ahead, slowing at empty intersections. Two-year-old and I get behind, slowing to chat with neighbors as we go. Kids play at the playground. I get my mile in around the walking path. We head home. Frozen yogurt snacks are distributed. Friend stays for snacks and to play in the clubhouse (under an old cedar tree in a neighbor’s yard). Other friends are spotted across the street. They join. Everyone returns to our yard. Happy chasing and tag games ensue. Friend #1 is escorted home by older neighbor boy. Friends #2’s mom yells across the street that it’s time for supper. Everyone scatters. Supper is served.
Told ya it was one of those days. One of those days that we’ve dreamed of for our children. One of those days that we hoped for when we moved to Tiny Town nearly 4 years ago. One of those days that leaves us smiling and sweaty and worn out from the Finer Things in life. Just one of those days.
