exhibit a: today i am thankful for parks! i never appreciated them fully until lil miss came of "park age". i am so grateful that we have a wonderful park within walking distance and others just a tad farther than that away. There is nothing like fresh air for a child, i've found--does wonders for the appetite, sleepiness and creativity! the tricky part for us is getting lil miss to leave without pitching an all-out fit. but grateful i am for them nonetheless. and then i got to thinking how thankful i am that our children can enjoy the outdoors in the first place without the sorts of fears that kids in some countries face and that they are able to spend carefree days trapsing all over playground equipment rather than worrying about the next meal or how to stay warm
....can you tell we went to two different parks today??
