We are on school vacation this week and Eve has been happily accompanying me on daily walks around town. She is pretty amazing at keeping up a running monologue for an hour and half each day!
The other day, after severe rains, we were out checking out the water levels. One guy had his driveway completely washed out! He had a board propped over the ditch so he could walk from his driveway to the road, but he couldn’t get his car out! (We passed by the next day and he had fixed it, don’t worry!) We also saw the Dothan Brook, usually just a small babbling brook, now a rushing river!
Eve also tried to save the earthworms that were scattered about the street and bike path. Fortunately that effort didn’t last too long. There were A LOT of earthworms!
I love this time I get to spend with her. When we’re out walking I’m able to mentally just be with her and not be distracted by all the things I should be doing around the house. She still has ridiculous life plans, but she is so happy to tell me all about them and I love to hear her enthusiasm for life and all creatures big and small. I’m lucky to be her momma and so lucky that she likes spending time with me. <3
