Leaving school, after the first day of classes, a lovely surprise at the fountain. Easing the sadness at the fountain being turned off for SO LONG. Every time I walk by, it is sadness to see no fountain.
The mother duck leading the ducklings.
Unfortunately the ducklings, seeming just newly-hatched, require a ladder to get in to the fountain pond. I had nothing with me or around me that would have worked yesterday. So the mother kept coming back down to sit with her ducklings.
Also, I talked J. into getting my tiny blue polar bear her own bowl of ice cream. Because it was cute, and silly, and he did not object hard enough.
