Time for the parents
Most afternoons when we get home from school, the kids barely make it in the door to drop their backpacks before they are back outside to play. At that point we, as parents, are an after thought. We make our kids stay in our yard to play....we have an acre, that is plenty of space! Other parents in our neighborhood aren't as particular about such things. This usually means that our yard is where everyone ends up playing. Fine with me...I know where my kids are and what they are up too! Now, with that being said...and as I pointed out earlier, we parents are just an after thought when our yard is full of kids....Imagine our surprise last week when Wyatt took the time to play catch with Daddy. On another evening, Emily picked some lovely "flowers" and brought them to me....please excuse the hair, it was a really windy day!We found and vase and displayed them proudly! Hmm, maybe they do think of us once in a while.
