What goes through the minds of children?

One of the few outdoor things to do now is visit the zoo. Numbers are strictly limited and you have to make a reservation, not that there are many people in mid-winter. The family walked through an area where the space for the larger animals bore some resemblance to their usual habitats. The path was bordered by sculpted cement made to look like rock and crags. Ellie crawled into this recess, almost like a little cave.

I asked her what she was doing. "I'm a homeless baby bear," she replied. After a bit of this we all went ahead to see more creatures.

She does empathize well.

Good to see her masked! I am surprised how many children have joined the caution...and they are still running around doing their kid things!

A day at the zoo would end up leaving her tuckered out.
