The Little Boy

by Lisa Anne Reynolds

The little boy runs around everywhere; jumping in puddles and climbing in trees. He falls down and gets back up laughing as he looks at the dirt on his pants and hands. He stops for lunch only because his mom makes him, otherwise he would continue to go and go. Once he is done with lunch, back outside he goes to continue his mission to explore and learn in the form of fun. Running and jumping, finding every rock, stick and bug within a fifty yard radius. All day long the little boy is on the move until finally the sun sets and his mom makes him come in for the night.
