A Few More Minutes
On beautiful days, it’s really hard to convince Roozle to leave school. Most of her friends are still playing on the playground while their parents chat nearby. It’s like we have nowhere else to be. And, well, we don’t really. So I don’t push it too hard.
Soon enough, this first school year will be over. Soon enough, she’ll be off to lessons after school or rushing home for homework. Soon enough, it will be too hot or too cold or too rainy for this.
So, fine, we’ll stay a few more minutes.
