He's a "thing finder" just like Pippi Longstocking!
He is! And Pippi is in our pile of books, soon to be read. I can't wait to introduce him to Pippi :)
For some reason the paved road seems insanely out of place!
Hmmm...not sure why. This is the road we live on, well, we live at the end of it. It is a very quiet road, which I love because Reece can walk, ride and scoot along it :)
Even my big guys still bring bits of nature home, I must always check pockets.PS- I nominated you for a blog hop :)
My big guy does too :) I think on our walk yesterday morning Justin picked up as many treasures as Reece :)I saw that Tracey, thank you. Will get on it this week.
I have the most wonderful young neighbors in my new neighborhood who are reminding me daily of how special it is to stop and look and be with very little ones. Everything is new and important and exciting. It refreshes the soul :)
Yes, so very refreshing. And such wonderful lessons our little ones teach us.
Does his room overflow with his finds?! Or do you manage to find ways of keeping them organised and under control? I think I'm expecting the latter response!
Sometimes. We find ways to use them. We have a collection of rocks in a bowl on the coffee table that gets added to daily. Pine cones and rocks get added to our table centerpiece. He has a few collections in his room....rocks, bark, shells. We press leaves/flowers and use them in crafts. We also created an outdoor nature table, because there are some things that just don't come into the house :)
I really enjoy getting to know Reece through your portraits. Such an eye for detail, love that he's always finding treasures!
Awe, thank you Chrisy.
We still have those kinds of treasure boxes shoved into closets, haven't had the heart to go through them and neither have my children. He is a treasure!
Thank you Karen, I think he is a treasure too. I have a feeling my future will be the same, boxes of nature treasures tucked away. We don't have a lot of storage space though, so things do have to move out on a regular basis :)
That is so lovely. I have always been a collector and it is great to share this passion with my children.
Thank you. He certainly loves to collect things :)
Ever find yourself looking at all the hats and just hoping that he will stay small just a little longer? Sorry, it's the new hat that caught my attention. It's that time of year again, isn't it? We pulled down Panda's hats and it tugs just a little to see what he has outgrown. Be well.
I do. It is funny, hats are the one thing that I keep. Not sure why, but they seem to hold a lot more memories for me than the clothes. And that hat, not a new one, but one from last summer, that he decided to put on Sunday morning. It was a little snug, which had me thinking the same thing...slow down and just stay small a little bit longer, please.xo
