As I got ready to start my day, I noticed four little darlin’s getting their coats and shoes on and they had little back packs and bundles over their shoulders. I asked them what they were doing, and they told me between giggles that they were running away.
I asked them why and they told me they were running away so that they wouldn’t have to do their chores any more.
You will notice that it is a little cold...and that Landon thinks that they are just a little crazy. Landon is way to practical to do something this crazy. However, little Keshawn would like to go with them, except that he is barefoot. By the way, Joeliana is in flip-flops, just in case you were wondering.
As they started on their way a beautiful soft snow began to fall. I was glad to see that teddy was going with them to watch over my silly darlin’s.
As Keshawn and I watched them walking down the drive way, he gave them a little wave good-bye.
I went back inside with Keshawn, who began to cry because he couldn’t go with the little run aways. Kalyn walked by him and lovingly said “I’m sorry Keshawn, but you’re not old enough to run way."
Silly darlin’s, do you want to tell them that running away wont get them out of their chores;
Or should I?
The rest of the story...they did come back home after a few minutes, and when I asked them why they were back so soon, they said they would run away when the weather got warmer. Then they asked if they could have some thing warm to drink. My answer...”Yes, my most precious darlin’s...as soon as you finish your chores."
