(that's our old house with the picket fence...just to the left of the jungle gym)
I spent a thousand hours on this school yard. We had family softball games, and birthday parties, shot off rockets and flew kites and climbed trees, all on this school yard.
I watched my dad catch gophers and fill in the holes so kids wouldn't break their ankles.It wrenched my heart a bit to be back on these grounds and see my son and my husband playing where I once played as a child.
I hope my own child knows how loved he is, how much we just want him to be happy in life.
