String Bracelets

Some things are simple.
Sunday, I took Jordan and Sofia to eat some pizza at the beach. We got in the car, turned on the stereo and drove twelve minutes to the beach.
They didn't fight once.
We had a really good lunch and walked the main street where we found to our surprise a little market. I told them they could each spend five euros and pick something out. Jordan bought five comic books for five euros, while Sofia found a porcelain fairy for 4 euros and a pack of stickers for 3 euros (she went slightly over budget and Jordan told her she owed me two euros). Then, we all got matching string bracelets- Jordan's has skulls, Sofia's has ladybugs and mine has butterflies interwoven in the string.
After we made our purchases we headed to the beach.
I dropped and laid.
Sofia looked for seashells and Jordan read his comic books while walking in the freezing sea.
Jordan stopped reading for a second, smiled at me and said, "Listen to the shhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhccccccccchhhhhhhhhhhhhh of the wind and waves".

Life was so damn good.
And simple.
