It was a warm, rainy day yesterday. We went for a walk in the woods. I have come to realize that much like dogs, children need to be walked each day. I say that with the utmost respect. They need their exercise. Rain is no excuse. Without their walk, they’ll just bounce off the walls and drive their parents crazy.

So keeping that in mind, we donned our raincoats and headed out for some fresh air. Our neighbor, the only child on the block close to their age, has become a good friend and he came along.
