we have spent our last few weeks gallivanting around town redeeming our few last days of solitude before school lets out. cashing in on the virtual emptiness of childrens play areas during what i call the 'golden hours'. (the time of day most kids are in school).
mondays mood brought us to chucky cheese. another first for denver.
we had some old tokens left over from years ago. to my surprise they still worked.
within minutes i found myself abandoned at the table. nev and denver took off in high pursuit. pockets full of bounty.
"To parents I say, above all else, don't let your home become some terrible miniature copy of the school. No lesson plans! No quizzes! No tests! No report cards! Even leaving your kids alone would be better; at least they could figure out some things on their own. Live together, as well as you can; enjoy life together, as much as you can." ~John Holt
