after a day at “the island”
we stopped at a park to play
it was cold
but that didn’t stop the kids from playing
and having fun
when we got there
the older boys (who are in middle school)
found a girl they knew
so they all just sat around
on various playground structures
poor christopher really wanted to play
and he would get them to do something for about a minute
and then they would all go back to talking
on the ride home he says to me
you start going with people in middle school?
i thought you had to be older, like high school.
