Running wild, chasing fireflies.
“What is life? It is the flash of a firefly in the night. It is the breath of a buffalo in the wintertime.
It is the little shadow which runs across the grass and loses itself in the sunset.”
When was the last time you used a skateboard ramp as a slide, ran so fast a camera couldn't focus on you and chased fireflies barefoot in the grass?
I did all of these tonight. I spent the night with My niece, Rylee. We went to the park, the actual slide, the swings, the merry-go-round was not fun for her. Sure she enjoyed it but, the skateboard area was the main attraction. We slid down the ramps and ran like wild barefoot. She climbed the ramp by herself and yelled: "I did it!!" And clapped for herself giggling. It was pretty much adorable. I had never gone over there before with Alex. I'm sad now that I hadn't. We had a blast over there.
When Rylee's mom came to pick her up, all three of the girls and Alex started running with Jackson and chasing lightning bugs. Rylee kept yelling, one! one! one! When she saw one. Emma collected over 13 of them, and Madison just ran wild.
I suggest next time your out on a beautiful summer night, run barefoot in the grass, catch fireflies and laugh.
