i decided to take the long route to the elementary school program and honors assembly tonight. i headed south first and rode a loop around town to get to the school which is only three blocks away.
really enjoyed the program. seemed a bit weird not to have my own kids up there, but i know most of the kids in town anyway. they're my kids. i've known most of them from the day they were born. i love living in a small town!
after the program and the retirement reception for our departing principal, i hopped back on my bike and rode the same loop, plus an extra bit, to get home. it was just getting dark as i pulled into the driveway. since i didn't think to put lights on before i left, i was glad to be off the streets.
