Today after leaving the Y from swimming Art and Lew got distracted with the nearby garden. They just doddled around in the woodchips and bushes for about 20 minutes. It was really fun to not be in a hurry and to let them explore things at their own pace. Lewis ate snow and watched Art as he made up little games and rules about the berries on the ground. He eventually lined them up on a rock for some reason.
And yesterday Art and I stopped at the egret's nest on the way home to doddle. He found rocks and leaves to throw and eventually just wanted to sit and watch the trickling water for a long time.
