THE PEANUT GALLERY: Puddle Jumping

Sometimes you have to change the script. Throw a wrench into the routine. That's what Peanut and I did last Tuesday. Tuesday is my day to pick her up from the bus stop. (It's also Peanut Gallery day here on DKL. And what do you know? Here we all are.)  Last week, it was pouring rain at pickup time. Normally, Peanut and I would use our bonus time on Tuesday afternoons practicing tee-ball in the backyard.

Due to the rainout, there would be no tee-ball today. To make up for it, I changed the script. " Why don't we go home and change into our rain boots and rain jackets," I suggested. "And we can go jump in puddles."

And that's just what we did:

Boots
Splash
Big jump
Polka Dots and Rain Drops
Wading
Of course Luna came too.
And of course she has a rain slicker.

I mentioned Tuesdays are for tee-ball practice. But no amount of practice could prepare me or Peanut for what happened in her first game. I wrote about that here.
