The Little Red Car
Well, my kids have played in it forever and forever. I got my $5 worth and beyond. They have gone in and out of it, on top of it...I think the dogs have gone in it and Matt used to tie a rope to it and pull the kids a 100 mph down the driveway in it. FUN, FUN, FUN...all the time. All the cousins have rode in it...it has been a ball of fun forever around here. The last year it has had less use because my kids were getting older....but we kept it around for visiting friends and family.
So, it kind of made me sad to give it away yesterday. This little "red" car is such a symbol of their childhood. But I gave it to my mother-in-law so the other grand babies can use it. I hope it lasts a little bit longer. Such sweet memories...as we get ready to move from our house a lot of those memories have come up. A few have brought tears...some laughter...some pain...but it's all good. Those memories are part of what makes ME. So, I take all of those moments and move on to the next season of my life. Even without the little "red" car :(
