We are still enjoying a car-free summer. I thought I would share some of life from the eyes of a child today. The things they notice and say can really crack me up.
First up was a stop along the beach where we had to stop to let my grand son try and figure out why the ducks weren’t in the water today.
This was the third day in a row that I noticed the ducks weren’t entering the water. They would step down on the steps and get wet, then shake off and get out.
There is a sign posted for swimming
My grandson wanted to know what the sign said (I wondered why he never asked before today). When I read it to him he asked me if the ducks could read and that’s why they weren’t going in the water. Not sure how to answer that without laughing I asked him what he thought. His reply: Yep they must have duck school.
We headed to the library and then the playground. He begged me to take pictures of him trying to do new things so here they are.
Hey we have to head home, it’s going to rain
Of course we got home before the rains started, but just to be sure he wouldn’t get wet he found a hat to wear while playing in the fields.
Getting late, so next thing I know I hear: Grandma I’m hungry can we go make dinner? Did I have lunch yet? Yes I took you out for lunch before the playground. Okay, can we make dinner?
Sure and since tomorrow is the farmer’s market, let’s make dinner from things I still have leftover from last weeks market. Okay, can I help?
Yes, you can. Let’s start by getting out the rice cooker (you can make much more than rice in it) and the cutting board.
Grandma, can you read to me? I’ll get the books out. Not long after mom showed up to take him home. They no more than pulled away and the rain finally arrived so I never got to see if the planter would have kept him dry.
