Zack was at work, the house was quiet, and a storm was approaching. It was too hot earlier in the day, so I took advantage of the cooler weather that blew in. I can’t spend too much time in nature. Is that possible? Certainly, not where we live!
Holding the hand of a toddler is easily one of my favorite things in the world. A bit squishy, a bit firm, never a loose grasp. Perfection.
“Mom the grass touched me!”
Life is hard.
The world is her dance floor. I hope it always is. Rock that confidence, P!
Out house exploring!!
We found an empty acorn shell! …and a wasp nest…
“Ew, Mia, put that down! It’s icky.”
“What is it?”
“It’s something icky.”
I looked but I found nothing icky.

Queen of the mountain. Lovely adventurer’s spirit.
“Hey, Amelia, can I see your rocks?”
[pulls them close]
I can take a hint. –but not before I take a photo! 😉
Still holding her rocks. 🙂
I’ve mentioned (once or twice) that I am so grateful for our large and abundant trees. I certainly wouldn’t trade them for a sidewalk!
We also found an empty egg shell by the garden!
When did she get so big??
We also discovered our first cucumbers!
“Mom, look at me!”

We had so much fun exploring rarely visited places in the yard. When I homeschool, nature will definitely be part of the curriculum, and the yard will often be the classroom! I never stop learning, and boredom never finds me outside. I hope that is passed on to my girls.
