The first puddle jumping of the school year began slow. The kiddos enjoyed walking through the ditch with their "fast blue boots." It is always interesting to watch the kids interact with mother nature. Knowing that it had rained the night before, I was prepared to encounter some water, however, I didn't want to predict or assume how the kids would react to the water in their play space. Today's goal was to just let the event play out and check in with the kids from time to time. Mary-Dale and I watched as they jumped and splashed and could see their cares slowly slipping away - are our teachers really letting us do this?
