What posts in June? Oh, thooooose thirty posts in June… again. It seems that for the fourth year in a row I’ve climbed aboard the daily blogging train and continued that monumental, multi-year writing effort to string a topic or idea across the vast reaches of years. Each day a new post on a new topic, but on the same blog-per-day topic as last year, creating another set of Those 30 Posts in June. Today, that post just happens to be:
June 20th // Something You Are Feeling
I spent about four hours in the middle of today volunteering on a school field trip with Claire’s class. And I feel like I’ve run a half marathon.
Sandwiched between a pair of jostling, bone-jarring yellow bus rides (where a kid actually threw up within five minutes of leaving the school) we filled a few hours in the sun of a nearby spray park with a hot dog lunch and the chaos only possible by forty-five engergized almost-done-first-graders and their teachers who are probably in desperate need of summer vacation.
I got too much sun, ate too much junk food (and I was keeping relatively moderate) and was pretty much the only dad in the diverse group of moms who revved into gear and served lunch, carted kids back and forth to the lone bathroom, and picked up countless bits of stray clothing as it was randomly shed across a few acres of city playground.
I got home and had a nap. And I’m still tired.
