August Break - Day 26

Today was pretty laid back. We had a movie watching, popcorn eating, frog catching, lazy kind of day. Nothing too terribly exciting happened which is more than fine with me.

The kids love to ride their bikes back and forth in front of the house. They usually have the entire road to themselves except for the odd truck driving by. I love the quietness out here. I don't miss the sounds of the city at all. Not one bit.

This cool old firetruck drove by the house breaking the silence with its sirens blaring and lights flashing. The kids scattered into the ditch. I stood there stupidly with my camera around my neck, not even thinking to take pictures of it. I'm usually so busy looking for cool things to take pictures of that when something truly exciting is happening, I fail to notice. Story of my life! ;)

It's after midnight already. For the sake of my sanity I really should have been in bed 2 hours ago. It's far too wonderful to savor the quietness after the kids go to bed though. Sometimes it's a little TOO quiet and the mice think its safe to come out of their hiding spots and end up scaring the crap out of me.
