Quiet night in the neighborhood

This evening, Evelyn wanted to play with the big kids on the playground near our apartment complex.  She was too little to play football with the two boys talking smack to each other, but a little girl who stares at us and waves at Evelyn sometimes took her by the hand and they threw leaves down the slide and took turns sliding and running up and down steps and ladders.  Evelyn thought she was big because a big kid was playing with her and the little girl thought she was big because she was holding hands and leading around a toddler. 

It was mundane as all get-out and I smiled and watched them and answered the little girl's questions about the herbs we grow by our front door.

That's all.
