Tulips and other challenges

Not much time to post today, but here are some pictures of what we've been up to...

I finished my first tulip dishcloth. It's definitely got some issues, but I followed the pattern all on my own without any translations from my teacher, so I'm feeling pretty proud of it!

And here's some of what Lucy's been doing outside today:

Climbing. This ladder is tied to a tree in our backyard to make it safer for the kids to climb. The other ropes you see are part of our "circus" (one of the kids' projects this year). And yes, Lucy can climb all the way to the top and down again!

Helping with laundry.

Exploring the squished petals of a grape hyacinth she picked.

Digging in the woods, following the other kids' lead (they were digging "a fire pit.")

Play along with us during the month of April for Children and Nature Awareness Month by posting a picture of your child(ren) each day enjoying the outdoors!

What fun. I love the climbing. It looks like an absolutely wonderful way to spend your time together.

Lucy has the exact same cheeks that both of my girls had. Little pinchable squishy cheeks that you couldn't help but smooch! She is such a cutie pie dollbaby.
