If this doesn’t make you think small town life would be tempting, I don’t know what would.
The following takes place between 10:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. in the middle of the week last week. (That was for all the 24 watchers our there.)
-Run into the grocery store for an item and hardly have to wait in line at all.
-Stop to pick up some things Brad needed from a car parts store. I hear “There she is,” when I walk in the door and they hand me the bag of things Brad had called and ordered.
-Liza’s 4 month check up at the doctor’s office. No need to tell them who we are there and Liza’s friend born three days after her just happens to be there at the same time for his check up too.
-Stop for some lunch. See some friends to chat with there.
-Check out books at the library.
-Get Wyatt in for a haircut at the barber. That’s a small town experience like none other.
-Go to the park. Friends to play with and a mom to talk to just happen to be there.
-Final stop at the eye doctor for a check up for Elliana. An acquaintance in the lobby took Liza to show her elderly friends also in the lobby.
All that within one mile of each other and no stop lights!
That’s small town life for you – not quite village life – we did have to drive a half an hour to get there.
