Hopefully this keeps up...

We had a long weekend and the weather for the most part was really quite good, and unseasonal for early October. Sunday we did the Essex Steam Train ride. Littlest March is very in to trains right now so it was a pretty good hit. Overall it was a little pricey (shocker) but the kids had a good time. We then visited with a friend of Mrs March for some conversation and snacks.

Saturday we had an interesting moment, one that I am actually proud of.

The set up: Saturday was really nice and Littlest March wanted to go over to the playground at his school. He took some chalk with him and Mrs March headed out. Sure enough 10 minutes later Little March, who didn't want to go wants to go. So we walk over.

We play and draw some stuff with the chalk in the parking lot and all that. Harmless stuff.

Fast forward to about 10pm Saturday night. Mrs March and I settle down to channel surf and we hear the pitter patter of feet coming down stairs. Little March is upset and asks if she could please speak with Mommy. Well, that conversation lasted a bit as I ended up going to bed and moving Little out of our bed etc.

The next morning I asked what the concern was. It seems Little had written some kids names down on the pavement near where they'd line up to come back in from recess. She didn't write her name just "Hi Mary" or what have you. Little March was worried that the school would find out she wrote this and that she'd get in trouble. She was very upset and concerned. We were "this close" to going over Sunday to wash the chalk off but it rained saving us the visit. Little March also was in a confession mood and told Mrs March she was involved in a little "teasing" session a few weeks back regarding another classmate.

Little March was open with Mrs, and was sorry for what she had done in both cases. I am not shocked or upset with her actions, I am actually glad she realizes what she did might be wrong or mean. The chalk issue all in all was harmless. Sure if she wrote on the school, or wrote inappropriate things I'd certainly have issues. Overall I am glad she is honest and seems to be turning out to be a pretty great kid..i hope it continues.

She's a good kid because she has good parents.
