Bean is very excited about this new development and for the last two days has wanted to "step in the fluff", as she puts it. I was a little hesitant, as Bean has somewhat sensitive skin and I didn't know if it might irritate her little legs. So last night I put her in her rainboots and she had a grand time stomping around, kicking up the fluffy seeds and squealing in delight.

Springtime "snow" storm
The cottonwoods in Dissertation City have started shedding their fluffy little seeds. At my house, the trees are dropping their seeds so rapidly that the fluff is falling through the air like snow, accumulating in drifts in the parking lot and along the edge of the grass.
