Yesterday Zack and I spent most of the day unpacking our final boxes. Four o’clock rolled around and we were at a loss as to how to spend our next few hours, and Penelope was not cooperating with her second nap of the day. So we set out for a river Zack’s uncle took him to as a kid.
We weren’t prepared for an afternoon at the river, we might-as-well have been going to the grocery store- next time we’ll come fully stocked with swimsuits, rain boots, buckets, shovels, hats and sunscreen, books, chairs and water diapers.
Penelope LOVED it! As if it were her job, she tediously dug rocks out of the water, determined to moved each stone two inches to the right. She can’t throw very far. She did not want to leave, even when bribed with food. That’s a big deal for the readers that don’t know her personally.
Our Queen of the River.
