On weekend mornings, after breakfast I generally tell Ed what my plan for the day is. Last Saturday, Helen had other ideas. Immediately following breakfast she announced "This is my plan for today."
We all eagerly looked in her direction and she firmly announced "No boardwalk walking!".
Connor was in full agreement with the plan, for I suppose he took it as a sign he was finally getting some respect. He's been into rules and signs lately, and a few weeks ago when my dad and Ed removed most of the boardwalk from our backyard, Connor insisted a sign be put up that said "No Boardwalk Walking". He explained at the time that it would be dangerous since parts of the boardwalk were missing.
