It always amazes me the things that can create such fond memories. Sights, songs, smells, sounds. Tonight for me it was taste. We had a great day. Church, naps, all the usual. Then, this afternoon we took the kiddos out to the archery range to shoot Connor's bow. (He and Kendon also went yesterday. I am telling you, the kid is hooked!) We didn't get to stay very long because we got rained out. So, we came home, got all cozy in jammers and turned on a cartoon movie for the kiddos. (I'm hoping that some day my kids will appreciate the joy that can come from a rainy day.) Anyway, for dinner I decided to make cinnamon toast and peaches. I know that doesn't sound like much of a dinner but it sounded perfect to me. You see, when I was growing up, that was always the meal we had when we got home from water skiing, a day of playing or on rainy let's just watch a movie kind of night. SO, it was more than a meal for me, it was a memory. Sound silly? Well, I was just talking to Kim on the phone and just yesterday she was telling her husband about the exact same meal and with the same amount of nostalgia as I was. I have to say, that I think my parents must have done a darn good job raising us kids if cinnamon toast and peaches can cause us to have such great memories and to cause a yearning for "home!" So, thanks mom and dad! You did a good job!
By the way Mom, I just talked to Kendon and I think we will plan on coming home on the 12th. So, cinnamon toast and peaches sound good in a couple of weeks?!?!?
Love you all!
