Playing in the Rain

Squishing mud under the boots

Susie is so muddy because she took a few spills!

I let Susie and her friend go out to play in the rain yesterday, since they both had rain boots.  Turns out the boots didn't make much difference for Sus, since she fell in the deep puddles several times, causing the muddy water to flow right down into her new "meow" boots. Haha!!  She's my kind of kid.  STOMP! SPLASH! Dig, dig, dig.  There was a HUGE dead bee on our patio yesterday morning, about which Susie kept commenting "bee fall down!!"  It was pretty awesome to make the bee float in the water and pour more water over him.

Someone commented on this picture that it reminded them of what they did as a kid.  That warms my heart so much, because I too, have these messy outdoor memories, and I'm so thankful that Susie isn't missing out on that, living in a big city.  Thank you, Lord, for giving us a bit of outdoor space at our humble apartment!
