It was a ‘PA’ day today, a scheduled teacher professional activity day where there are no classes. I arranged a play date for Big Kid with a friend from his class last year. For lunch we picked up some food from McDonald’s and went over to the house of a boy from Big Kid’s school. My friend was there today watching the boy with her own sons. It was a beautiful day; warm summer weather but breezy. The trees in that mature neighbourhood were swaying and going ‘wisha wisha wisha’. My thoughts went to a childhood favourite read, the Magic Faraway Tree by Enid Blyton. It was lovely to sit in the yard listening to the trees while watching the boys play.
