May began with tears, not mine, the girls. The floodgates opened about not wanting to move. I was waiting for it, I know how much she loves the land, her freedom when playing outside for hours, and the puddle.
Yes leaving the puddle caused a puddle of tears! As seen in these pictures the puddle is a big part of her play! It has been a source of tadpoles, frogs and salamanders, it has been the frozen waters of Alaska that Eskimos live on, fish and float in their rafts, it has been a beach on Hawaii!, it has been a marsh, a swamp. It is an endless source for imagination, many a friend has shared in the adventures of this puddle!
And so begins five days of good-byes!
Good bye Puddle!
