Kid concert

We’re at our first kid concert – it’s a bit of a mass of kidmanity. There’s even something like a five year old mosh pit up at the front (not kidding). It’s great, really — fun, engaged, optimistic.

Challenging times, but impossible not to be hopeful & optimistic in a context like this.
