While Little J played soccer, Sassyfras, Juiciness, and I took a little walk yesterday afternoon in anticipation of spring's arrival today. I think we're all happy to be outdoors without our coats weighing us down.
I found a colorful treasure box for the kids to take with us. It's small enough for them to carry, but big enough for all the "perfect" rocks and other treasures they find. They have an affinity to what I call "parking lot rocks". They all end up in my pockets and when my pockets are full, I start dropping them behind me, without them knowing of course. Now, they can carry them until they're too heavy.
hmmm, somebody needs a haircut! It's funny that I look at this cute little guy everyday and don't notice his hair is too bushy until I see him in a picture.
I think we took home all the dandelions and other weeds in the field too. Sassyfras loves dandelions and will stop to pick them just about everywhere.
We found this bee already dead along the path. We carefully set it in our box to look at later.
The kids sorted their treasures when we got home and picked a few to display. Most of these items will wilt by evening, but for now they are on our nature tray.
