"As a child, one has that magical capacity to move among the many eras of the earth; to see the land as an animal does; to experience the sky from the perspective of a flower or a bee; to feel the earth quiver and breathe beneath us; to know a hundred different smells of mud and listen unself- consciously to the soughing of the trees." ~Valerie Andrews, A Passion for this Earth
This past week has brought some amazing weather and now we are patiently waiting for the leaves and flowers to blossom! We are truly looking forward to this spring with our little stinker toe who absolutely loves to be outside...in the warmth of a spring day or the freezing cold of winter, he just loves it. We can't wait to watch him discover and explore the world around him as the earth begins to unfold! I have a feeling he will be eating some bugs this spring as he has discovered a passion for the ladybugs that live in our house!:)
Here are a few random pictures from the past month... Mama and Eli on a ski...
On a hike in the arb with papa. Eli loves to ride in his backpack and look out at the world!
Little stinker toe loves to have his feet free of those things we call "socks". Really though, he does not allow socks on his feet...they go into his mouth the second we put them on. I love this picture...his sweet little toes all full of dirt! That's our little stink toe!!
