Tonight a sudden and rapid deluge provided the inspiration to go out splashing in puddles; and this one right in front of our house proved to be the most inviting. “Splashing” has a different meaning for Oscar and Edgar. For Oscar, naturally, it meant sporting his water-tight rainboots and gingerly moving the water in soft ripples–never allowing it to go above his well-protected ankles. For Edgar, well, look at him. He went swimming–and used his boots to alternately scoop and pour out water. A warm bath and a tuck into bed followed this perfect summer night.
