today is nice enough not to need a coat:
we decided to pack up our bag and go on an adventure:
over the weekend we put up this birdhouse that had been in storage since we moved. it was originally a wedding gift (a lovely one!):
the bean loved helping flash with the project and immediately started talking about wanting to have food for the birds as well. this morning i discovered that there is a wild birds unlimited store just a few towns over from us so that is where our adventures took us. we asked a lot of questions of our very helpful salesman and came home with several free pamphlets on feeding birds and a new bird feeder:
the bean was so pleased to be bringing home the feeder. he carried it out of the store himself and held it on his lap the whole drive home. it was delightful being on this adventure with him. (i actually had an ah-ha moment and suddenly felt i better understood homeschooling but that might be a different post.)
sometimes this boy has such awesome perspective.
i love feeling the earth waking up all around me.
i feel downright giddy.
and i am WAY behind on housework!
hope you all are having a wonderful monday.
