School's Always in session
(Her mean mother knew she could do it and needed to see for herself).
Ladybug began solid, continued solid, raced like a champ and gave it overall, the best run. As I thought, each child felt so pleased and proud of themselves for finishing the mile they forgot their earlier hicups.
There is something wonderful about a small town parade. The flags fly, the politicians wave and shake hands, the 4-H horses poop in the middle of the road, the community floats float by, the lovely girls wave, the kids throw candy... and best of all, my little one gets the opportunity to feel like a celebrity.
Summer is still a time for learning, a time for growing... for the adventurous heart, school is always in session.
