No More Running Away
We picked up Charlie and Sarah from camp. They had a blast! In fact, Sarah was crying that it was time to leave and asked to stay two weeks next year. Allison, for one, was glad to have her siblings back.
It was a 3-hour drive home. When we reached our street:
Allison: OK, new rule for the summer: no one can run away from me anymore.
Me: What do you mean?
Allison: No more running away from me.
Me: Who ran away from you?
Allison: Well, Charlie and Sarah just ran away to camp, and before that, well I guess I ran away to Gran Gran's. And before that you ran to Africa. So I just want us all to stay together now.
