Under the influence of The Secret Garden, I almost sent the kids outside in the rain today à la Dickon. But then I changed my mind and just made homemade play-dough instead.
Later we’ll make zucchini bread since it’s so nice and cool out today. Maybe tea will be zucchini bread and milk served in buckets to give the kids a chance to eat like Mary and Colin in the garden.
But I draw the line at bringing squirrels into the house. An orphaned lamb, maybe, but not a squirrel.
Unless it’s a baby squirrel.
Okay, fine they can bring squirrels in the house.
If they’re willing to play outside in the rain.
