Magical Friday

Once a month I attend a 9am meeting at the School Board Central Office. Since I live in town my principal doesn't make me drive to Dubach just to turn around and drive back to town. Usually on the day of these meetings I load Harper into the car for a doughnut date. However, last Friday we did something a little different and it is one these days, where we get off schedule and purposefully break the mold, that the magic happens.

It started with a tender embrace to our dear friend, Mr. McGuire who so graciously invited us to the Kiwanas Pancake Breakfast at the Civic Center. (can you see my heart melting??)

Then with a smidgen of time to spare we dashed to "The red park" to sneak in some fun before school.

..and we hopped and we scotched! And then this glorious little slice of heaven opened up with an invitation and we gladly accepted.

We slid and chased and made faces and sucked up every ounce of crisp morning air until my watch brought me back to reality. But on the way back to the car we had to walk through this.....

and if you give a girl, especially my girl, some leaves, chances are....

AND...if she has a little sister, chances are....
you're gonna have some fun and make sweet, precious memories. The kind that give me a heartache and make me wish for "stayathomemomhood." But I soaked it up, clicked away and I even got my Christmas card photo but no, you can't see it yet!
