it was the day after sawyer's birthday (so, july 23 in case sawyer's birthday isn't a fact stored in your brain.) we had the afternoon open. i asked the kids, "what should we do?" dangerous question, right?? i don't ask an open-ended question like that often, but i was feeling risky.
joshua said, "let's go fishing at the pond!" (rebekah was still away at camp. so joshua was "boss." after me, that is.)
the rest of them chorused, "yes!!"
this would involve walking to the pond in our neighborhood on a gorgeous day. no money. no food. not even getting in the car.
let's do it!!
