Having lunch with the kids at school is something I totally need to do more often. Today was Tate's day. As I walked into the school to sign in, I saw his class coming down the hall. His teacher winked at me and said, "Tate has been talking about your lunch date all day." I then saw Tate's eyes light up when we saw me standing there. He then said, "Do you have my McDonald's?" So typical.
He grabbed my hand and we walked to the lunch room. He wanted to eat outside (you can do this when your mom is with you). We went to a little table and ate our tasty (and oh so healthy) lunch. Ethan ran over when he saw us (he was at recess) and drank all of my diet Coke and half of Tate's fries. He then gave me a big hug and asked when it would be his turn.
It was fun to see so many kids from the neighborhood and church waving (have to say...kind of a celebrity was I) at me and saying, "Hi Mrs. Porter!"
I totally need to do this more often!
