One night last week I went for a walk after the boys were in bed. It was wonderful. The air was fresh and cool. The light was beautiful. And there were kids everywhere. The playground was teaming with families squeezing what they could out of these last hours of daylight. I decided I want us to be one of those families.
So last night, after dinner, we piled the dishes in the sink and brought our cantaloupe stained boys to the playground. The energy felt so different. It didn't have the restless frustration from the heat of the day. That edge was replaced with a breezy, easy going pace. Light and fun. It almost made up for not having a yard.
Next time I'll remember my camera.
