I feel much better today, just a little cough. It’s pretty out so I decide to take Mama on a walk. She needs to get out of the house and burn some energy. I walk her to the school so I can look at the kids. No one is outside so I take her to the rock under the madronas. Come on Mama. Walk.
Some kids come out and I want to go visit. Kids! Kids! Mama! We squish across the soggy field and I call out Hello to the kids. Hi kids! They are very loud and playing with balls. But Mama stops me before I can play with them.
We walk down hill to the creek. It’s so pretty. Water! I watch for a while and Mama jumps across. Jump Edie? I walk carefully across a root. Uhoh! My boot sticks in the stream and my sock gets wet. I throw leaves in and watch them drift downstream. This is the best puddle ever.
I can’t relax. It’s time to go home. Bye bye water.
