Tis the Season...

...for spending hours outside, finding worms, fuzzy caterpillars and mud puddles, eating grass, digging holes, making forts or shelters as James calls them,** and collecting 'hay' (grass) for the cows (that we don't have, by the way). It is supposed to reach 70 degrees tomorrow! (Make a special note of Katie's caterpillar-wrangling accessories :)

**James is recently obsessed with the documentary Alone in the Wilderness, about the guy who made a cabin from scratch, with just hand tools, and lived in the Alaskan wilderness for 30 years. Yes, he is only four, but he is now trying to emulate all the techniques he has seen on the show. Like licking his finger and holding it up to check the wind's direction, and chipping the bark off a tree branch with his shovel. OK, and maybe he did try to chop down our tree with his shovel, but that didn't go over too well.
