Last week was crazy. It was the week leading up to Spring Break and we were swamped with finals and projects that had to be done before the quarter ended. One of those activities was Raven’s final pottery class in town. It was a two-hour class, and that means the younger girls and I had some time to kill. At Jon’s suggestion, we tried ‘sledding’ with cardboard in Kakaako.
It really wasn’t the right conditions to sled. The day was blustery and damp. Lenore didn’t have much speed to slide, as the grass was wet. Luckily there was lots of mud to keep Evangeline busy.
Once Lenore ditched the sledding efforts, we trashed the cardboard and headed down to the ocean front. The water was very still and the girls could see some little fish in the shallow water.
We didn’t go down those stairs because I knew at least on of the girls would end up in the water. But the water was so clear, we could see the fish from the top of the stairs. The dog was trying to catch the fish with his paws. Evangeline loved every minute of it.
Once we could tear Evangeline away from the dog, Lenore walked her up and down the paved path. They found some feral cats in the rocks.
After 2 hours, I let the girls have one last look out over the water before we headed back to the car. We made it back to the car, removed wet shoes and socks, and headed out to retrieve Raven from pottery class. Evangeline was exhausted, and napped the entire ride home.
It was a nice way to kill some time last week, but I’m glad that week is over. This week is Spring Break and we’re not going to leave the house if we can help it.
