Saturday Afternoon


Indian Summer arrived but it hasn’t stopped the leaves from falling off my crab apple trees.  The gummys are spending the night and we’ve been outside this afternoon.  They claimed their feet were hot and they wanted to take their shoes off and go bare foot.  I had to smile because I remember being barefoot during the fleeting final days of summer so I told them it was OK.

They spent quite a while running and playing in the long grass.  It culminated in them rolling down the berm repeatedly giggling all the way.  It was kinda cool to sit there and watch them do that.  It reminded me of all of the times my brothers and I did the same thing when we we kids.  I suppose some things never grow out of date.
