We went on a walk, does that count? JJ’s dad takes him to dinner on Wednesdays and doesn’t drop him off until 8pm. I should have done this when I picked him up earlier, but well… you know stuff happens.
So when he got home we walked over to the local BBQ spot because I suddenly realized Matthew and I hadn’t had dinner yet. (They have saved me on so many nights like this.) We stopped and took a few pictures along the way, but more importantly we talked. I love it when he’s relaxed and can just be himself.
Our walk might not have been long and we may not have seen much nature, but that’s ok. I have another moment in time to look back on for years to come.
Day Three tomorrow – “Mentally picture your child at age 30. Parent every day with that in mind.”
As I was saying yesterday, the school years fly by. I’m sure my former classmates would attest to that. Hard to believe that 21 years ago I was finished with high school. No direction, no hope… little did I know my life would turn out just fine.
