The first Tuesday of the month is Parent Council night at Nora’s school. Did I mention I am the proud Parent Council Representative for the Cherry Blossom Kindergarten? I can’t imagine you are surprised.
This means Ben and Nora are on their own that night. I take off after dinner and they play, have stories and bedtime. This last Tuesday, Nora wanted to go in the backyard and kick the soccer ball around.
Though I had a productive weekend and paid a neighbor kid to mow the front yard, the back yard is still overgrown (stupid rain brought the grass back to life).
As I was getting ready to leave, I looked out a back window and saw this:
Ben had carved a soccer field out of the wilderness and painted lines. It’s not exactly regulation, but it’s not just “kicking a ball around.”
Dads are so damn cool.
