Squirrel loves the water as much as Possum loves fishing. She wanted to get into the lake as so I put her in the float and off she went kicking and splashing. All the while her brother was fretting "Please put Sissy back into the boat. Don't let her float away." I guess I should be grateful that he is so concerned about her. Squirrel floated around the boat and played for a long while. Her Daddy finally decided he had to join the fun. She enjoyed splashing him and then they both enjoyed splashing Mommy! When it was time to get out and go home, Squirrel did not want to leave. I do believe the child would live in the water. She has no fears. It was so much fun watching her enjoy the lake for the first time.
