I'm doing 52-weeks of childhood activities/events to try to be more present and intentional about making meaningful experiences for Little L. Some weeks, I will do some front-loading with books and videos beforehand, so that Little L knows what to expect, gets excited about the activity, and isn't overwhelmed by the experience. Other weeks, I will just sort of wing it and live spontaneously in the moment. I will try to document these occasions with pics, but depending in the nature of the activity, no guarantees that I can whip out the ol' iPhone to snap a pic!
Today it was raining, so we decided to go splashing and hopping in the puddles. We pretended to be frogs (ribbit, ribbit) a la Daniel Tiger, and Little L examined how her boots looked as they immersed in the puddles. She also spent time stepping on (and smooshing) peanut shells she found in one puddle. When she got tired and needed to be picked up, we examined the buds blooming on the trees. I think these were cherry blossoms but Little L thought maybe brown, green, red and blue flowers will bloom!
Anyway, it was a lot of fun on a soggy, gray Saturday. :)
