Missing Person

Corwin and Charles have soccer practice at different places now so I generally drop Corwin off first, then take Charles to his practice. I wait there until Charles is done then head over to pick up Corwin because his practice finishes 30 minutes later so it’s easy to get there before he’s ready. Because I am so far behind on things lately I have been spending practice time using my laptop to get some writing (personal and business) done, free from the distraction of kids on Minecraft. I thought Charles had figured this out but at the last practice but at the last practice, I noticed that it was well past the end of practice time and no Charles. I decided to go ahead and walk over to the practice field to see what was going on. On the way, I get a call from Josie’s dad, asking if I wanted him to pick up Charles and drop him off at our house. I said no, I would just walk over and get him. It turns out that Charles had decided I wasn’t there because looking out at the parking lot from the practice field he didn’t see the car, even though it hadn’t moved since he arrived and I had waited for him every single time this season.
