I am grateful for a lazy morning.

I am grateful for a trip we took to Botanical Beach. It’s an amazing place; smooth rock formations and potholes make for a thriving collection of tidal pools, and the weather cleared just as we arrived.

It’s a long drive, and we didn’t get moving until the afternoon. “Is this crazy?” Julie asked me on the way up, “Yes,” I replied. It was, we had roughly a 2:1 ratio of driving to being there, but it was totally worth it.

I am grateful for a big free event at Topaz Park, not far from our house today. We mini golfed, the kids bounced in bouncy castles, and then they wore themselves out even more on the playground before walking home.

I am grateful for root beer floats, complete with tiny umbrellas after supper.

I am grateful for Coop, who knew Farley was nervous about his first day of kindergarten without parents, and decided to propose matching shirts. He'd have preferred it if Farley hadn't also chosen orange shorts like his, but he was a good sport about it anyway.

I am grateful that we can now walk both our kids to and from school.

I am grateful for Cooper's Cub night. He was excited to see all his buddies there from last year, and I enjoyed hanging out with them and seeing my Scouter colleagues, too.
