Lest, I forget… my kids will come to screeching halt upon the sight of a worm.

This photo was taken as we left my cousin’s home in Kansas City. It had rained all night. That was one of the challenges of packing for this trip. Modern weather technology had alerted me to rain potential throughout the week. We took rain boots and tennis shoes, despite my longing to have the kids just take one pair of shoes. It’s so much easier to keep track of one set…
But if we’d only taken one pair of shoes, I’d be admonishing them at that moment for getting their sneakers soaking wet rather than letting them stare at a squirmy worm for a few minutes before wet off for the day’s activities.
Probably made the right call.
