anyway, after noticing the kids were looking rather bored yesterday, I suggested they hop on their bikes and go to the park (there's a playground at a charter school not too far from our house.) "it's a beautiful day!" I exclaimed. "why don't you head outside and get some fresh air." (btw, didn't you absolutely loathe hearing this as a kid? ooh, I couldn't stand it. and now look, I'm saying the exact same things to my own kids, lol.)
immediately, Harry's eyes got all wide and he appeared a little concerned. I was just about to ask if something was the matter when he pipes up, "you mean, we can just like, bike to the park..." he paused a second before adding, "by-- by ourselves?"
insert full-blown laugh attack.
afterwards, every time the image of Harry, all shell-shocked and wide-eyed appeared in my mind, I couldn't help but think of Aesop's fable, 'The City Mouse and the Country Mouse.'
here they are, looking a bit like night and day. I mean, would you ever guess these two are cousins?

well, I'm off to meet Kim and her mom at the cabin today. I might just attempt a little crafting, we'll see.
have a great weekend!
