Things one should never outgrow:

There are frogs in this pond. Somewhere.

My son and I are probably both a little old now for frog-catching. But we've been doing this since he was a toddler.

And that's the point, this is common ground for us. It's an activity that represents a place that represents a time that represents our relationship. It means wonder to us. Watching. Looking. Seeing. Thinking. Discussing. Contemplating. Action. Laughing. Repeat. Curiosity doesn't kill cats; it catches frogs and it binds some fathers and some sons. Like us. Don't forget it son.

You sound like such a great dad, dbs.

As Debra She Who Seeks says, 'may you always catch frogs together!'
