While I love it when Duke comes with me to walk Kin to school, it is nice to have some time just for Kin and I. We leave a little early and have time to talk, climb mountains, talk, visit the creek and talk some more. He is crazy and a bit ornery before we leave, but when we are walking it is completely different. It is so nice to have this time with him being so nice. He does have yet another cold and it seems to be making its way around the family too. Urg - a real downside to school.
