Skipping School

I got this dress last year after season so Charlotte could dress up.
She likes to put it on so she can dance, but today she wore it out on the town.
We decided to skip school and go exploring. We went to the Post Office to mail some things, then walked to the thrift store for some new books.

We walked over to the Depot-they have a caboose to play on. At least, I think its ok to play on. No one said anything, so I think we are good. We went inside to a little train museum that I didnt even know was there. After 7 years, you'd think I'd know this town a little better.
We found the "most awesome puddle ever".
"Charlotte's winning!"
"Yeah Ethan, Im gonna beat you up!"

Then we went on a walk downtown, played in some alleys and read the historical society signs on the buildings.Ethan found some secret holes in the walls where bricks had fallen out. In one, we saw an old license plate, probably someone put it in when the wall went up? That was pretty cool.

Me: "Isn't this fun? Its like an adventure."
Ethan: "Yeah its like...Charlotte's Baby Dora, and I'm Diego and Caden is Boots, and you're...you're...the cow!"
Sweeping Beauty

Me:"The cow?!"
Ethan:"Yeah there's a cow in it.But it's a smart cow."

Then we came home and had a picnic for lunch and played outside in the evening.
