April 7

Well let's see.
There was another half gallon of vinegar and two pounds of baking soda into the sandbox this morning.

And a couple of videos.

There was much outside play - the last day of friendly weather in the 10-day forecast. We soaked it up.

There were made-up games

making locks(a mechanical mind, that one)

and there was getting messy.
There was working in the garden

and prehistory revisiting.

There was a bike ride with a neighbor friend

butterfly watching (at least two different white cabbage butterflies today! - four visits)

playground play

and moss collecting and strewing.

Another butterfly - a Monarch!-

and then another! - a Mourning Cloak.
Aaaah... rowdiness with Daddy.

And dinner.

Books, videos, and sleep, I think.

Til tomorrow, then.


  1. Oh my goodness! I've never seen/heard of a Mourning Cloak butterfly before. Gorgeous!

  2. Yippee!! More kids that like to play in the mud :)

    The flutterby is magic.

  3. The Mourning Cloak is beautiful! I don't believe that I have ever seen one either.


Thanks so much for sharing your thoughts!
