No Pina Coladas, though

I have decided that I really want to make sure that Ben walks at least 5 of the 10 trips to and from school each week. The rain last week meant we only managed 4, so I am aiming for 6 this week. We walked both ways yesterday, but other commitments required a lift this morning. So this afternoon I decided that the rain would hold off long enough. Not so much. It started to bucket down about 5 minutes before the bell rang. It stopped about 5 minutes after we got home. Every part of both of us was saturated. I can assure you that breastfeeding pads really are super absorbent.

We actually had a lot of fun walking home. We splashed in puddles, we compared soggy bits and when we got home there were warm showers all round. I'm not sure the beagle appreciated the moment though.
