Notes from the six year old entertainment committee: I've whined occasionally about the difficulties of three adults trying to work in a smallish house with a first grader underfoot. The burden is hardest on my daughter, who works for our firm. She has a lot of computer and phone duties, plus supervising the kid's school assignments. It can get overwhelming.
So yesterday afternoon, a beautiful spring day, we drove the kid out to a county park that contains a wildlife preserve. Access is partly restricted - you can do a one-way drive through and have to stay in your car. We saw bison, elk and deer. There was also a flock of geese with many little ones that decided to cross the road right in front of us. Ellie squealed with pleasure.
