We had a family dinner last night. Fainjin took along a school book especially, and read it to Nana and Poppa, Auntie B and his cousins. They all listened with appropriate attentiveness and there was applause at the end.
His face glowed so much with pride that it lit up the room.
It was dark by the time we got home. I got out of the car, and said, “Come out and look at the stars, kids!” – as much to get them out of the car and moving as to encourage them to look up and appreciate the view.
Babess stepped away from the car and looked up and gasped. “So many stars! Wow, Mummy! You found lots!”
