Daily Life 019: Whirley Gigs

One of the things that amazes me about my little two-year-old, is seeing the open wonder with the world around her, and watching her make connections between one thing and the next. This spring, as the days got a little longer, the sun would finally still be up when we got home from work and school. This would give us just a little bit of time between the car, the mailbox, and the front door to notice the little whirley gig (or helicopter) seeds all over the driveway. So, we'd pick a few up, and test them out. By the time all of the seeds were finally gone for the year, she'd gotten at least good enough at tossing them that they'd actually spin a bit before plummeting to the ground.

I think that's a success.

This is actually an older one, (notice I'd shaved my beard off for a little while...I think I'd just finally gotten my hair cut, too! Ha-ha-ha!) from the beginning of April. It's taken a little bit of time getting adjusted to Olivia being in our family, but things are starting to settle down a bit, so hopefully I can be a bit more regular again. Thanks for bearing with me.

Until next time, take care and be good.
