Why “Puddle Jumping” for a title? While thinking about an appropriate name for my school blog, I remembered a conversation with our LS art teacher, Mrs. Knipp. She has observed boys and their antics here at Gilman for over thirty years. She was telling me that she would love to write a memoir someday with the title Puddle Jumping at Gilman . She laughed thinking about the way each boy at Gilman, young and old, finds puddles whenever they venture around campus. The bigger the spash, the higher it goes, the more it creates commotion, the more fun is experienced! Wet and dirty for the remainder of the day- no problem! Exploring through fun play sums up a Gilman lower school boy.
