A Day With My Son

019ec7c8e56df536d6805c590982fcd0b072e43a05William and I 025Today was a good day.  Today I was able to spend the entire day with my son walking around the city, enjoying his last music class of the summer, lunch al fresco and some playing in the park.  We talked, we played, we laughed, we even cried a little.  There was a mess on the floor that mom shook her head at when she got home and a delicious donut eaten in music class.
