One of Those Days

As in, one of those perfect days. I knew I had to go back to the school just after noon so I let myself indulge this morning in sun and my book in the backyard. Then off I went to help with the JK class trip to Nauman's Pumpkin farm. Rosie loved it, the sun, the orange everywhere, and the hay jumps. She was glowing from the moment we stepped on the bus. Couldn't get enough of the newness of being a big girl. I was just happy to be with her and be outside.

It was a big day for William too. After days of debating the pros and cons of possibly conquering the fireman pole at school (and practicing on some smaller ones at other parks) he did it! I love the doubt that he will actually do it on Rosie's face in this picture. But he did and he was proud! As he loves to say right now, 'je suis tres tres bon!'

And then an early Thanksgiving dinner with the Neufelds finished off the day with sheer insanity. It was perfect. We were smart in having a kids table and then letting them dash off and play in the backyard until it was dark, which surprisingly wasn't that late. Good grown-up time.

Yep, a keeper of a day for sure.
