I don't know what the weather is like where you are, but this past week has been just gorgeous around here! This Monday was, in particular, a perfect day. Sunny, warm but not too hot - just ideal fall weather that feels like a second chance at summer. So my Dad - Grandfather extraordinaire - had the bright idea to take the Little Dude out of school and bring the Little Guy along out for a little family boat ride on the river. Needless to say, L.D. did not object to a day off school at all. We drove Grandpa's boat down to the local dock, and with all the strength that a three and six year old can muster, we got it out into the water.
And then got back in the boat for a leisurely trip back down the river. The Little Dude favoured this spot at the front of the boat where he could "stretch out and relax." Because life in grade one can be very stressful.
