Last night I took my kids to a monthly council meeting for the school district. While we have by-laws we follow, the meetings have a very informal setting and parents bring their kids with them on a regular basis so they can attend and serve their community.
As we were ready to get in the car and leave, my kids realized it was pitch black outside. Thank you Daylight Savings Time! They couldn’t remember the last time they went out at night so they suddenly felt a rush about the little adventure they were about to enjoy. I didn’t want to ruin their excitement by telling them our travel time would be less than five minutes.
So I strapped the kids in, then myself, opened the garage door and pulled the car kids heard a song on the radio they liked, so they asked me to turn it up. As I was putting my car in first gear, I heard my six-year old sigh and say with a big grin
“Aaaaah, that’s the good life!”
It sure is! And the kid doesn’t keep the good life all tohimself. Look how well he takes care of his own doudous (loveys in French). They’re enjoying the good life too. It’s all good!
