Had our company picnic on Friday. The kids were looking forward to it all week. By Thursday, every single teacher and child at their school knew that I was coming to pick them up early to take them to the carnival. And when we drove away at 11:30 that morning, they actually had me stop outside the playground so they could wave goodbye to everyone.
"BYE, NICOLAS!" they screamed. "SEE YOU ON MONDAY! WE'RE GOING TO A PICNIC!"
