We went to my favorite park today, the boys to play basketball and the girls to scooter along and all around me while I walked. It was a beautiful, gusty, warm Kansas day.
Katie was excited to revisit the spot where the famous “Spit it out, Katie!” incident happened. (For those not familiar with the story, imagine a young girl running with her gasping, oxygen-deprived mother. This Katie girl was trying to say something and struggling to find the words, and the impatient mother gasped “spit it out, Katie!” Katie, being the obedient child she was, promptly spit out her gum. Not what I meant, honey.)
