"Whew! I think that's the last of it."
"Well, what do you think?", I ask.
"I didn't think we'd ever finish.", Ellie exclaims.
"So, what do you wanna do now Ellie?"
"Explore!", exclaims Ellie.
"It's not too bad out today. A little humidity, but not bad."
"The children are out fishing in the creek. Are you up for a walk Ellie?"
"Um,...sure. I think.", Ellie bites the corner of her lip.
"It's not that far Ellie. Come on."
"Wow. It's really nice out this way."
"Oh my...do you mind if we pause here for a minute.", Ellie sounds a little breathless.
"Sure. The shade will feel good.", I reply.
"Ok. I'm ready. Is it much farther?"
"Nah...I can already here 'em"
"I see them! They've caught something!"
"Hopefully they're sticking to crawfish and fish this time. " I reply.
"Here, let me lift you up to get a better view."
"Um...I don't feel so well."
"Do you want down Ellie?"
"Let's cross over to the other side."
"The other side?, Ellie asks with a little concern in her voice.
"I just wanna snap some shots. It won't take long.", I coax.
"Ok. Those flowers are pretty in the back here."
"Uh-oh...I think the rain's coming. Time to go in guys!"
