Book-Club

Monday, July 28, 2008
Tonight is book-club, which means another night out! As I left, Landon was heading to the park with the kids to search for blackberries and have some fun with Sam's new kickball in the big green space at Fulton Community Center. Tonight was the first time since Juniper's birth that I've gone to book-club without her. Can you tell I'm looking forward to it?



Landon took some great pictures of the kids at the park while I was away this evening.




Samuel's new ball has led to many hours of fun, but has also brought on some serious lessons about not following a ball when it strays into the street. So far, Samuel has been great about not chasing the ball, and when it rolled out into Miles Street tonight, Landon said Samuel stayed put as his ball rolled right in front of a car. The car stopped, and Landon went out to get the ball. When he handed it back to Sam, he burst into tears, probably from the stress of his ball going into the street.



There were lots of laughs. Sam has been playing on this playground since he was sixteen months old, and still never grows tired of it.



Now Juniper will grow up and learn to master this playground. Right now, she's learning all about swings.



Samuel already mastered the swings long ago, and has now graduated from the baby swings to the big boy swing. Soon, he'll be jumping off mid-air.



Before they knew it, the sun was setting, and it was time to go home. I got back shortly after 9PM from book-club, and Juniper had just woken up from a nap, and Samuel was sound asleep. Juniper was happy to see me, but she wasn't crying. She's getting a lot more attached to Landon lately, and it's a great feeling to know she's so happy while I'm away.
