Emily and the hare!

In the playground yesterday. Emily on the swings, Alice climbing. Alice sees a hare run across the playground.

Off like a shot!

The hare that is!

And Emily!

Never been seen to run so fast before - she's doing a Michael Johnson - belly out, shoulders back and arms by the sides. The hare is going to be in trouble!

There's no shout of geronimo, but a cry does go out from Emily: "MINE"

Well the hare gets the message and legs it. Eventually Emily gives up. So, there follows the usual de-brief/chat.

"Aw, did you want to stroke it?"

Emily: "Eat it!"

Huh?! Ok, a bit of post-chase adrenelein stil flowing through the system there! Hopefully!!"
