There is a great picture book called Someday is Not a Day of the Week. I'm not sure if this book is geared toward the kids or maybe more the parents. A little beaver, Max, is always trying to do something with the grown-ups in his life. They always seem to be too busy with other things and tell Max, "Someday, Max, but not today." But then Max figures out that someday is not a day of the week and that they should go have some fun today!
Well, today was Someday! After dropping Molly off at horseback riding on this glorious 66 degree last day of January, I told Ryan that we were going for a ride. I told him we were going to take a ride to a tree.
"A tree?!?" he asked.
"Yes, you know that tree on the side of the road with the tire swing? Well, I always wanted to stop there and take a picture."
Ryan's eyes light up and he's all in! What 10 year old boy wouldn't be?
This tree was just calling to me, inviting me, welcoming me..."Someone come, someone swing on my swing!"
What does the world look like from up there?
Can it really be January 31st?
How high can I push this swing?
What does the world look like upside down?
Love this kid!
The shorts and the t-shirt tell me it's warm outside but the long winter shadows tell me that today may only be a short lived gift.
And as we looked around, we found another tire swing...
A Project Life note...January is over and February is here. I just downloaded my pictures to Shutterfly and placed my order. I can't wait to get my bright orange folder in the mail and start putting together my first month of 2012.
