Our Week

We’ve really had some nice weather, though at times the wind has been a bit chilly. We have tried to get outside everyday. Selena is enjoying going on nature hikes even though it is just around our home. On one such hike we discovered this cute little tree frog. Papa was kind enough to hold him while I was able to get a picture.

Bugs and insects have been a huge favorite. Watching all the bees, to observing ants and spiders has kept Selena very busy in her exploration. She is climbing into every shrub, and tree just to see what bug she might find next. After playing a game of hide and seek she discovered a little friend had attached himself to her hair. She thought it was a caterpillar at first and was very surprised and bewildered when I informed her it was actually an inch worm.

Of course I myself have been having fun with all the different plants and flowers we have in the yard. There has been enough nature to keep all of us busy exploring every inch of our property.

I often just try to figure out what is going on in Selena’s head when we get pictures like the following. Sometimes she seems so engrossed, and yet unsure she really likes the idea of what she is doing.

The one constant at our side continuously is Pal. He is never far from Selena’s side these days.


You better believe we are taking advantage of every bit of sunshine we can get. As you notice we can’t seem to peel Selena’s Montesano Little League sweatshirt off her. I don’t blame her though as I love mine too.

  3. I am glad your weather allows you some time outside. I am sure an active child like Selena needs it a lot! Pretty flowers!
