While walking to school yesterday - - [yes, we walked it is only 99 here now, oh joy] Peanut struck up this conversation . . .
Peanut: Mom Sister P. said the first day of fall was yesterday [9/22]
Mom: [JIC she reads this, I am treading carefully ;) ] Well Peanut, you know where Sister P comes from right?
Peanut: [Looks [or possible glares] at me confused - silent]
Mom: She comes from the "motherland"
Peanut: [the look has turned into an eye roll - still silent]
Mom: She is from Utah where the green grass grows ( . . .all around, all around, and the green grass grows all around), people can food [like in jars], you can buy food storage at Costco, get a temple recommend at Ream's [grocery store] & believe it or not . . . where the leaves change colors?!
[This excited her. The last part.]
Mom: So this is why Sister P. gets excited for "fall". I guess, it reminds her of "home" because we [sadly], don't get to see that happen much, here in Phoenix.
Peanut: Ohhhhhhhhhhhh Mom [looking VERY proud, pointing to the sidewalk]
Yes we do!!
