Day 238


Nic bought me a new bike helmet. We went to REI to pick it up. I wasn’t ready to go home and start the routine. So, instead we went for a walk around the duck pond. It was drizzling in the car, by the time everyone was out of their carseats, it was down pouring and blowing. The kids were whimpering. I told them to solider on. Finally, we climbed a small hill and ran down all five of us as fast as our legs would run. The kids thought this was amazing. We did that over and over again. We ran up and down for so long, that we were all drenched to the bone. Ben was shivering. I called it quits. They were mad. There were tears getting back into the van. I love spontaneity.
