Nature is for loving! On a rare (read "very rare") sunny day in the midst of all this rain, I chanced to see this group escaping from the nearby elementary school.
It made me smile to see what looked like kindergardeners running free "into the wild." Their teacher held them all close at the road as a train passed, then must have yelled, "Okay, go!" for they exploded from her onto the gravel driveway across the street. I'm not sure what they were looking for as they bent over near the rail road tracks hidden by tall grass. I'm hoping it was for bugs or something natural and not for pennies smashed on the track. Perhaps one of my readers (Brenda that might be you) from this area can enlighten us in the comment section.
Whatever the reason, I felt lucky to see these small humans run free.
