Ah, the first day of spring break. How shall we spend it?
Mom chose a book and the couch.
Dad chose to expand the patio.
Alex chose to take the little girls on an adventure.
Considering the last adventure involved fire, I was a tad concerned.
But Alex, his girlfriend Julie, Anna Grace, and Abby all happily headed off for the nature trail in our neighborhood. Evidently the girls were bound and determined to catch a fish….by using sticks.
As I am enjoying my solitude and book, the phone rang. It was Alex.
I expected to hear…..the girls are tired and don’t want to walk home. Can you come get us?
But this is what I heard: Mom? Abby fell in the creek. She’s walking kind of funny since she’s so wet so we’re coming home.
Oh good grief.
Evidently, she decided to use a stick as a bridge to cross the creek.
And Alex just stood there watching. Didn’t offer a word of warning or anything.
His response to my incredulous look….
Well, she won’t do it again, will she?
