United Way of Central Indiana gives a free book of the month to preschoolers in Marion County. They are brand new, beautiful books. Meredith always loves receiving these in the mail. I keep thinking that one of these days I’m going to write a gushy thank-you note to the donors who make it possible for young kids to have a decent home library. It’s fabulous! The books have quickly become some of Meredith’s favorites.
The book for September is about a wild, little pony that “feels the wind in his ear” and goes on an adventure. The morning after I read the book to Meredith for the first time, we went on a walk to the park. As we were walking along, a gust of wind picked up and Meredith laughed and said, “I feel the wind in my ear!”
Well, today I’m feeling the wind in my ear too!
Here’s why: a family member generously enabled us to have a second car. It’s something that will get us through the end of Kevin’s schooling until we can buy a larger vehicle for our family. I’m so grateful. It’s so freeing to know that I can grocery shop during the day, or go meet up with a friend for a play date, or take the kids to the Children’s Museum, without having to go downtown two or three times in a day to transport Kevin.
So, yes, both me and Meredith are feeling the wind in our ears!
