WORK IN PROGRESS: 79,574 words
A few days ago, we packed up the kids and headed back to Philadelphia. We had an afternoon appointment at Children’s Hospital for our oldest daughter. The doctor was pleased with her progress and made a few suggestions to help her scar heal. As her mother, I found relief when the doctor said we wouldn’t have to come back for a year and at that time he really just wanted to see a picture of her lip.
After the appointment, we headed for lunch at Pat’s Steak House, founder of the Philly Cheese Steak.
Then we headed to Franklin Square, where we sat on a bench and listened to a story about an old district in Philadelphia. This program, Once Upon a Nation, is a really enlightening and interesting way to find out more about our Nation’s history. All stories told were about old Philadelphia.
There are thirteen Once Upon a Nation benches within walking distance around Franklin Square. We were able to sit at two of those benches before story time was over.
We played in the park, rode the merry-go-round, and ate ice cream before heading home.
This is one story, I’m sure, I’ll never get tired of hearing. Especially, when it’s my kids retelling it with smiles and giggles of the day we visited Franklin Square.
