Ah the simple joys just keep on rolling...
This week we rode our bikes to a local playground to meet up with a homeschooling group that we'd never met with before. We were delighted that there were lots of older kids in the group and Summer made a new friend which she was thrilled about. The other groups we go to seem to have more older boys than girls. She doesn't mind playing with the boys, but it is nice for her to have a girl for a friend too.
On the way home, it started raining a little bit. We only had about a mile to go so we kept on going. I could have thought "oh no..we're all going to get wet...it might be slippery...will the kids be ok?". But I didn't. I saw my jeans getting darker as the big fat raindrops coloured them...and all I could feel was JOY! I whooped and laughed at how delicious it felt to be in the fairly warm rain, riding our bikes, feeling free! The kids picked up on that and started laughing with delight too.
We went home and got into some warm clothes. For me, I got into my pyjamas. AJ wanted to go to the library so we went. Yep, I went to the library in my pj's. Mind you, to the outside observer, they probably looked like yoga clothes, except that I usually wear a bra to yoga. Again, I felt a sense of freedom, of really just not caring what anyone else thought. And that freedom of self is absolutely delicious!
