I think that one of the best things about being a parent is getting to experience the things my kids love. Yesterday we went to a railroad museum.
Three retired gentleman proudly showed off their love of all things train. Like little kids, you could see their excitement to show off their painstakingly built models. These men had known one another for years, finishing each other’s sentences and filling in gaps in their stories about the history of the railroad in this part of Indiana. Their knowledge and dedication was apparent.
Carson didn’t care about the stories. He was in awe of watching as the model trains circled the elaborate track over and over again.
I could have stayed for hours, listening to the mens’ stories and watching the wonderment in Carson’s eyes. Or at least imagining the wonderment in his eyes. He wouldn’t turn around and risk missing one of the trains passing by.
