Friday is now buying club day. I found myself looking forward to it like it was a holiday. This afternoon a group of moms teamed up in the nearby little park, to watch each other's children and take turns "shopping." Apple-Apple got to work at the treat table, but the other children stayed at the park and played. I've yet to get a really good photo from the club itself, or the loaded stroller. Maybe next time. This is an amazing weekly experience. We're about to tuck into nitrate-free local hot dogs, a glorious-looking salad, and more steamed asparagus.
