” … This is the trail of the tiny snail …

” … This is the trail of the tiny snail …

A silvery trail that looped and curled
And said … ‘lift wanted around the world’ … ”

When Jeanette picked up the boys from our house earlier, we had had a welcoming short sharp storm.  We’ve had extremely hot weather lately with no sign of rain, until this afternoon, when the heavens opened for a short time.  The boys were fascinated with the trail left by a snail crossing our step at the front door .. Connor repeating lines from one of their favourite stories, The Snail and Whale.   We haven’t read the book for a long, long time .. I was amazed that he remembered the text !   Young minds are like sponges !
