a small thing we did that made the kids very happy

One day last week I brought a dollar to the library.
We stopped at the implement and I let Calvin pick a root beer.
And by "a root beer" I mean a soft drink from a vending machine, like how some southern folk supposedly refer to them all as cokes.
He picked Sprite.
Norah yelled, "Juice! Too!"
They guzzled a little both before and after the library, after which I finished it off.

Little things can make an ordinary walk into a special occasion. Ignore the comment by Nate -- he's just jealous. (plus if you think about it, you can never do it again)
