I am a mom, a wife, a lover of God and my family, a friend, a naturalist and environmental educator, a writer, a crunchy granola, a reader, thinker, scrapbooker, journeyer - not necessarily in any order.
On Wednesday my Mom was in town for a conference, so I took Annika down to meet her for lunch. This was Annika's first bus ride, and she was excited to go, but a bit nervous the whole time. She had just gotten a plush pigeon to go with the book Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus! and she thought it was pretty funny that she was bringing the pigeon along for the ride.
We had a nice time with Mom - too short, as always, but Mom had to get home before the floodwaters forced the freeways to close. She made it through the vulnerable area just in time. Annika wanted to go again on the bus, so I guess we'll be planning some more trips in the future.
