Most people detour to avoid construction. Lately we’ve detoured especially to see it. Keianna and Keegan joined me for a few errands today, and driving home, the crane was in motion!
Keegan’s glee knew no bounds when I pulled over and parked so we could watch for a moment. I guess “stop and watch the construction” is the boy equivalent to “stop and smell the roses.”
Further down the road, around the bend (visible in the background) are towering piles of dirt. Each time we pass by Keegan says, “Ooooh! Can we PLAY in it!?” Alas, it is fenced off–unavailable for play.
Ah! The rapture on a boy’s face watching a crane sway beams against the sky! It reminds me that we should pull off the road more often.
