A slice of life…..This afternoon, I watched from the upstairs window while my daughter, her husband, and four kids were outside loading the car for a trip to Magic Mountain.
It seemed so chaotic, with kids going the wrong way, stroller and gear on the sidewalk, etc.
I thought about how much work is involved even getting ready to go somewhere.
But then, as I watched, their father held the three older kids up one at a time so each could draw a smiley face in the dirt on the back window.
It melted my heart. It rained tonight, and the smiley faces are gone.
The memories will last a little longer.
