Regardless, we spent the afternoon devoted to the slow pursuits well suited to the country. Makeshift basketball played in a cornfield. Stick fights and races. A walk to the pond to feed ugly ducklings who never turned to swans.
We soaked in the sunlight that has been in short supply this May. Enjoyed what will be one of our lasts visits to this house. A few weeks after Jeffrey Cotton is born, Claire and Andrew are moving back to the Beach. A move I am very happy they are making, even if it does mean an end to the days spent mostly on the ramp off their porch will the kids make fun what's found right beyond the door.
