Wonder Woman set off Friday morning for a girls’ weekend with some of her out-of-state friends, leaving me to care for the kiddos until late Sunday afternoon. My mom took them for a good part of Saturday, but yesterday, it was just me and them, from sunup till almost sundown … and I’m beyond thrilled to report that we had a great time.
It was unseasonably warm — almost 70 — and all of our neighbors used the day to rake, bag and dispose of the leaves blanketing every inch of ground in the neighborhood. I did some raking, too. Yeah, I raked a big pile of leaves at the bottom of our little slide, and let the kids barrel into it, over and over again. That’s enough yard work for me, thanks.
