We went to Audrey's new school Barbecue last Friday evening. Unfortunately it bucketed down with rain just as we arrived meaning that a lot of the outside areas were flooded. The rain seemed to have an instant transformative effect on the children there who ran around madly jumping into the many puddles that had formed.
I lost sight of Eli for a while and so I walked down to the adjoining playing field and saw a melee of big boys stomping in a huge puddle. They scattered as I approached leaving a small boy in the middle - Eli - who continued to show me how he could splash the water with his feet.
Both him and Audrey were very wet (but happy) on our short drive home.
