At last we’re moved into our home in Colorado Springs. While we were moving in, I took Matthew (9) to The Home Depot in the pickup. It was a real man’s trip. Matthew loves to draw and he really likes the mechanical pencil we keep in the truck. Besides being able to put back the unused lead, it has a large soft eraser.
Matthew: Papa, I really like the big eraser on your pencil.
Papa: Papa had to put a big eraser on the pencil because I make a lot of mistakes.
Matthew: (Thoughtful pause) Yeah … old people make a lot of mistakes.
The grandkids (the four that are old enough) just love riding their bikes and scooters up and down our driveway. I never dreamed our driveway would be such a great source of joy and entertainment. Actually I thought more about how am I going to get all the snow off the driveway.
Settling into our new home with the family around regularly is great confirmation that we’re exactly where we need to be.
We are blessed!
