Kit was out of town for a funeral, and I had the girls this weekend for a series of birthday parties and classes. While Claire was in Crenshaw’s for a party, Molly bitterly complained that she could not go too. But I took Molly to a school park right next door. It turned out to be really fun, with the usual playground but also an outcropping of rocks that was perfect for Molly to climb over. Plus an abandoned lacrosse stick and ball and a big bouncy ball. This was all easily enough to fill up and hour and a half while we waited for Claire’s party to end. Molly showed a lot of enthusiasm for the rock climbing in particular.
