Spending time with my niece and nephew always leads me to time well spent. Adventures included learning about the sky, the stars, and the International space station. While waiting for the sun to go down, we gave it a trial run.
While we were getting the hang of this, a train started passing by us. The backyard is only a stones throw away from the train tracks. I was with Cbug and so I didn’t notice crazylegs at first. But then I heard her counting…117…118…119…
Counting the train cars as they went by. I used to do the exact same thing when I was her age. I hadn’t though about that forever. I told her about how similar we are. She told me that Grandma told her the same story. I think to myself that these are the bonds that holds us together.
The sun was finally over the mountains, and we were ready to see the night sky. As the stars started appearing, we all looked at the great universe with a closer eye.
