Ice Cream, Social
Yesterday I packed a dinner for me and the kids so that we could picnic after I picked them up but before I brought them to Jada's school's ice cream social. They played with friends on the school's playground while working in bites of PB&J and pears, and then we walked to the blacktop area where the line for ice cream stretched out halfway down the block. It was a blur of kids playing, parents getting reacquainted, and lots of sticky little fingers. It was a nice start-of-school gathering. And hey, we all got some free ice cream. Not bad for a school night.
