Feathered Aspen



I’m trying to initiate more unstructured time outside with the girls. We bring a picnic and plan to walk a bit, but that’s all.   
It’s not without its challenges; I’m pretty much guaranteed a tantrum from the eldest if the snacks aren’t plentiful, free flowing, or to her liking/ if it’s hot/ if she has too walk far.

But today, after the requisite tantrum, turned out to be a marvelous success! Lily spied a fuzzy green caterpillar, and we were enthralled for no less than 45 minutes.

 As chance would have it, we had just received a book in the mail from Boobah about Charlie the caterpillar. We read it aloud, stopping to measure our live “Charlie” progress often. 

What great serendipity!

  1. Ah, serendipity! Though, to be honest, you look more excited than Lu:)

  2. All this makes me very happy. Glad the book arrived serendipitously (that’s a made-up word) and to see Lu in her Catherine and Donal dress she loves (as do I). I loved the picture of Lu enthralled. What a great way to spend an afternoon. Love as ever,
