A sunny day made more delightful by the discovery of a sunny mansard with a bad green top and then a trip to the zoo with my favorite 5th grader and preschooler.
Children #1 and #4 were on a zoo field trip together. The 4/5th graders are
'buddies' to the little ones in the Montessori preschool classrooms. With 2 of my kids going to the zoo it was clearly one of those field trips I was going to be chaperoning. I tried to cram in a million errands before reporting to school by 9 for driving duties. As I made my way down Pestalozzi I spotted this yellow and green disaster.
I am getting a little sad this special school year is coming to a close. It was neat to have a 1st year preschooler, a kindergartner, a 3rd grader and a 5th grader. I'll never have that line up again.
Sunny Side of the Street is one of my favorite Pogues songs. It's even a little cheerful. Click here
