When your Kindergartner doesn’t have school because the preschoolers have orientation in the Kindergarten, it kind of throws you off balance. (at least, it did for me).
Blue had Monday off.
Red was pissed because she had to go to school.
I almost let her have the day off too, but a) she was being a little bitchy/entitled about the whole thing and b) she had a big presentation to get ready for on Tuesday (I know, I do recognize that she is only 8, but still, Fablefest was on Tuesday…more on that another time).
So, I took Blue for a walk on the nice day we had on Monday.
And at first she whined.
And I was thinking, “SHIT, the girl gets the day off and she’s whining about taking a walk to the river.”
But then I pulled out the camera (I know, I am brilliant) and handed it to her.
Thankfully the battery was charged and I had emptied the card, so she had 675 photos she could take. (she took about 150).
Here are some, including running into a friend who frequents the piano bar and a dog he was borrowing from a friend to take on his walk.
