On Saturday afternoon, while homeless til the carpets dried, Reid and I went to visit Melissa and her family. Reid played with playdough with the big kids for a surprisingly long time. It was a glimpse of the future, maybe, with Melissa and I exchanging a few sentences at a time without needing to be constantly involved in what our kids were doing. Sarah and Stephen are big enough to help Reid out and Ben is absolutely fascinating from Reid’s perspective though the feeling is not reciprocated. :+) Reid and I went for what might be our last outdoor swim of the season. The air temperature was 23 and the pool was 26 but we only lasted about 10 minutes. Still, I won’t look out the kitchen window in the winter and wish we’d gone when we could.
On Sunday, Ken took Reid to the Museum of Science and Tech while I had some mama-time. They saw trains and rocket ships and a mirror that made Reid look one foot tall – quite a change when you’re as short as her, I guess.
