Yesterday’s visit up on Avdi’s hill was kind of bittersweet, as it was the last time I’ll see the kids before they go back to PA. Who knows when I’ll get to see them again. Plus Avdi will be away for quite a while himself, so we’ll be on our own. Life must go on; like irreversible river currents, you may as well go with the flow.
So I tried to make the most of my time with them, playing outside for the much of the sunny day, while Avdi got stuff done. There were pretend fire pits, lean-tos, leaf nests, hose rivers and dams, water guns, and just hanging around with them and with D. The latter let me sample some of her good home-fermented Scandinavian sima (like a lemony mead). Add a couple of decent beers, and the day was complete.
