Aren't the months just skipping along? I am saying more and more to myself, "Didn't we just do this last month?" Why are Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas just around the corner? Our parish hosts a simple fall picnic every year, but the kids work up enough excitement to match a Disneyland trip equivalent. Probably the #1 reason I love children the most. They know how to appreciate the ordinary. I have intense memories of my grade school days and the annual carnival our school hosted. Man. To do that again. We would sell booklets of tickets. The person who sold the most won a prize yet I can't remember the prize. Jeff Hake was the guy to beat each year because rumor was his grandma lived in Tipton, KS and sold some of the booklets to her friends. I had no concept of strategy back then, but my memory is vast. My friends tease me about my memories. Heck, I think I remember my own birth.
The grounds were blocked off so I was able to watch her mosey around.
