Rain Puddles & Froggy Boots
It was the perfect morning for a walk together.
We discovered crisp autumn leaves of all sizes & shapes.
Benches called out for us to rest a moment, and take in the scenery.
The rests were always short-lived…
And the puddles? The countless, trail-swallowing puddles?
Well, they called out to one particular little boy for something else entirely.
Thank goodness for Froggy rain boots!
At first I tried to steer him past the puddles.
Then I remembered that jeans are washable.
The boots were waterproof.
And little boys were meant to puddle-jump.
And puddle-jump he did!
He stomped, squished, jumped, splashed and giggled
through every puddle that stood in his way.
And I have to admit…I joined in. How could I not?!
Another bench, another brief rest,
and the challenge of climbing up all by myself! .
Such an unforgettable morning.
I love this soggy, tired little boy,
and his boundless enthusiasm for the messiest of childhood adventures.
I love how, while puddle-jumping with him,
I felt like a child again today.
