Jasper’s on spring break. He’s four, in full-time French school. Yesterday he spent all day playing and romping with his cousins Calum and Rowan — lots of skateboarding in the basement, video games, lego everywhere. He was going to sleep over at Aunt JD’s house, but he called us at 10 pm, crying, wanting to come home. Which was fine, because I really missed him. We’re both big suckers for hugs.
When I arrived to pick him up, he was watching Ferris Bueler’s Day Off (1986). Oh Yeah. The movie is now listed under Nostalgia at Amazon.com.
This morning is sunny and warm. The Globe has a picture of Mt. Kilimanjaro — it’s peak free of ice and snow for the first time in 11,000 years. I thought of this while waiting outside for my ride; her car was locked, running, warming the seats and the planet.
I have to hire a good bilingual proofreader this week. Know someone?
I promised some pictures yesterday. Here’s one of Jasper at the park this weekend, and Simon missing the action, asleep in his little yellow sled. I call it The Bucket.
