Braden has a new best friend. His adventure, exploring fun friend (as he puts it). He loves his new friend Andrew. Andrew is a boys boy. Loves climbing trees, turning up rocks, digging holes... you name it. And Braden is only too happy to be right there next to him.
Since the rain has stopped the boys have been outside in the front and back yards most of their weekends. They go out and spend HOURS out there playing. They don't come in until dark. With all of the trees and hills and rocks and leaves and bugs and sticks and run off streams there is so much for them to do out there. It is a back yard made for exploration and imagination. On Sunday Braden announced they were playing 'secret tunnel'.
It does me (and him) good to watch him play like that.
