Yesterday I tried to get my oldest son to join me on a walk over a windy (but small) hill to investigate a lake.
An honest LAKE. Man made to be sure, but old and BEHIND MY HOUSE.
We have a HOUSE now.
It is the biggest BIGGEST thing I have ever lived in before in my whole very entire LIFE.
It has a basement and a garage and an oven with GAS and a new bookshelf and a big bedroom for everyone and an EXTRA BEDROOM.
Never before in my life have I lived somewhere with a whole extra BEDROOM.
Milo flatly refused ( well not flatly. he was quite dramatic about it ) to come with to the lake.
I'll get him there. I wonder if the kids here skate on it when it freezes. There a is also a total sled hill.
