Remarkable, especially considering I can see his school from my porch window.
The problem is there is so much to see and do between here and there .... At least if you've got three little boys in tow :) This is one thing I love about motherhood. Sure, there are moments when speed is important (try coming in late and scrambling to get food in hungry bellies).
But for the most part, my children slow me down. In all the best ways. Sometimes it should take 20 minutes to walk a few blocks.
For our morning school drop off routine we usually hit the playground on the way there. And again on the way back :)
This morning we detoured towards the back of our complex which looks out over the green-way. Lucky us, they closed this short section to add new storm water drainage pipes.
Does it get any better than this? The boys love watching. Luke hollers at every piece of moving equipment. Not really distinguishable words, just sounds of pure ecstasy. The more impressive the equipment the louder he yells.
Actually, he'd make a great foreman. When a machine stops moving he yells "more more more". He has no time for lazy construction workers who do anything as silly as getting out of the drivers seat or turning off their machine.
The fence is a nice perk. Not every construction site is so nicely contained and it takes me out of the bad-guy role of saying "not so close to the bulldozer" and "please back away from the edge of that hole". We'll be back tomorrow morning to check on their progress!
Too bad we never have any fun :)
