My Reunion Story

I think you guys might enjoy this little gem from our Easter gathering just passed...

I was sitting outside on one of the picnic table benches after eating when the call to egg picking was issued. Naturally, all the kids came running inside from the sandbox and blacktop. Connor Wilson was no exception, but he had to make a pit stop next to me to pick up his shoes and socks first.

It turns out he's pretty proficient with the shoe and sock donning process. I gave him a hand with one shoe that was a little too tight for him to pull on by himself, but he handled everything else on his own while chattering on about how great egg picking was going to be, and how he hoped everyone wouldn't start without him.

I bet nobody would have even noticed if he had come in barefoot given the flurry of egg picking activity at the time, but Connor knew that he had to get his house in order, so to speak, before moving onto the next activity. Cute and responsible!

All those kids are such a joy.
