Adrian was very happy to go to camp this morning. He fussed a bit when I brought the backpack out, but when I mentioned camp he laughed. He got in the car, smiling from ear to ear.
My mind wandered a bit as we drove and I missed the turn. Adrian quickly let me know with a vocalization and we made a u-turn. I thought about how pleasant the drive was. We take the back roads there, winding through trees, beautiful views of the mountains, through a quaint little town and then up, up, up the mountain.
We arrived just in time. The morning had gone so well.
So I thought. I turned around to talk to Adrian and realized in his excitement he’d forgotten to put shoes on. I checked to make sure we didn’t have a spare pair of flip-flops or something but no luck.
We had to drive all the way back home to get the shoes. Sure, it’s a plesant drive. But I’d rather not do it twice in an hour!
