I am grateful for Coop, being very helpful and capable at the grocery store, finding all the stuff on our list while we sauntered through each aisle.
I am grateful for Gabe and Raph, friends of our boys for a long time now, over for a sleepover. They are familiar and comfortable with our boys, as our boys are with them, too.
And I am grateful for the village; when we told a few friends we were headed for Goldstream for a cookout, they showed up too. Kids ran rampant, got dirty, climbed on trees and developed rules and guidelines for play that were quickly ignored or revised. We ate hot dogs and s’mores. We were there for hours. It was great.
And I’m grateful it worked. They were all tuckered right out. A pair of 3 year olds, and a 7 and 8 year old have not been heard from since 9:37pm. A late night for sure, but pretty good considering all the excitement.
