Matthew went back to school yesterday for the first time in almost 4 weeks. He was like a celebrity with all his buddies crowding around checking out his latest cast and saying hi. He had a big grin on his face.
Funny thing, so did Ryan. I think he enjoyed watching Matthew back with his friends as much as Matthew did. For Ryan, it meant that life was back in order. The end of what I am sure was chaos for him.
After school, the boys played on the hill outside the school. It was cool out and all the other kids had gone home. I asked if they wanted to go and have lunch. Both of them said no. They were having the best time finding bad guys, chasing them, hiding from them...playing.
And I had the best time watching the joy on their faces. What else could a mom ask for.
