Here's a picture from two weeks ago. For reasons that I won't mention, I determined that my son was in need of some "constructive" activity. So I got him up early on a Saturday (I know, that in itself should have been punishment enough), and took him along with me to a community clean-up event.
It just so happened that this community clean-up took place along my new jogging path.
Ethan didn't seem to mind too much, especially when he learned that there were donuts for the volunteers. Together, we filled up about two large garbage sacks of trash. Then we went home.
This week, he and I each received thank you letters from the mayor of Signal Hill.
