275: Family

Blades of grass of all ages mingling together by the pond.

The family.  We were a strange little band of characters trudging through life sharing diseases and toothpaste, coveting one another’s desserts, hiding shampoo. borrowing money, locking each other out of our rooms, inflicting pain and kissing to heal it in the same instant, loving, laughing, defending, trying to figure out the common thread that bound us all together.

This is the promised scheduled post to help me meet part of my commitment.  The outdoor part will be easy.  There is a zoo outing planned as well as some fun around the pond (fishing, swimming, and barbecuing).  I stocked up on chalk for driveway drawing and bubbles for making magic appear with one little breath.  There are balls (including the Big Red Ball that the wind brought to us one stormy day) and rubber duckies to throw into the pond.  And there are all sorts of magical worlds to explore in the garden, the meadows, and the woods.

Wishing you a Saturday filled with magic and childlike fun.
