A perfect day, with soundtrackYesterday it was lovely ( as it was today) and we headed off for one of those long, meandering, child-led walks. The kids were in of a long Middle Earth LARP, with Matthew as the self appointed DM ( he's the only one who understands the stats and can do the math) so I took my MP3 player. Appropriately, one of the songs playing while I watched my beautiful free range children gambole along the trail was Rush's Time Stand Still. Would that I could! Also apropos, I listened to my favorite Led Zep song, Battle of Evermore, which I personally think is far superior to Stairway.
The boy is going on his first sleepover tonight, after a church social. The DM is uneasy- not because we don't implicitly trust The Boy's host- we do! but because it requires letting go.
