A Winter Moment

Saturday, February 13, 2010

Going outside is quite a process: shoes, coats, hats times four. Sometimes I get the process started before I stop to look out the window. Then I find myself standing on the porch watching the rain come down with three children all bundled up, buckled in the stroller, and excited about going outside. But happily water doesn't make us melt and there's no prim nanny waiting for us at home to say, "Children who get their feet wet must always take their medicine." So we venture out anyway feeling just a bit braver and slightly reckless as we stomp in puddles and race the little rivers down the side of the street.
