“Kids, we’re going to the museum. Our friends Joe and Sam will be there.”
“YAY!” they shouted. And all three of my children threw their arms in the air and hopped around.
“Also,” I added, “there’s going to be another family there. They have two kids. I don’t remember if the kids are your age, though.”
Cameron, who is 9 1/2, turned to me and said, “It doesn’t matter how old they are, Mom. We can still make friends.”
I smiled. I guess I still have some deschooling to do.
