I am grateful for a birthday party Coop attended for one of his classmates today. It was wonderful in its simplicity. No entertainment, no gimmicks, no grown ups running any program. Just a big backyard equipped with a trampoline, tire swing, and fire for hot dog and marshmallow roasting, and kids running rampant doing whatever they wanted to do. Coop had a ball!
I am grateful for a tidy home. It was insane this morning, but Julie and I teamed up on it, and it’s now much tidier.
