A good decision

There was so much to do today. So much work. So many personal chores. But he was home today and his friends were busy. Next week, he has camp and more camps the week after that. So today, I chose him.

We left at lunch time and rode our bikes to downtown Oswego. It's a long gorgeous ride along the river. He packed us PB&Js (mine crunchy, his not) and cheesy pretzels. We sat by the river and ate under a tree. He skipped stones and threw big sticks. I fooled around with my camera and breathed in fresh air. We went to the Bike Shop. He got a new bike seat with loads of padding. I got a basket put on mine to carry future bike riding lunches. While we waited, we walked down to the Dairy Hut and had cones (his - a twist, mine - straight up vanilla). We picked up our bikes and rode the long ride home.

A 2 hour lunch with my 10 year old son. One of the best decisions I've made in a long time. :)



To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment. Ralph Waldo Emerson


Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. Consider him who endured such opposition from sinners, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart. Hebrews 12: 1-3
