Nature

Little nature girl

Lily is truly a nature girl.

I’m not sure if I have written about this (I think I have…) but, when I was pregnant, Will and I would joke about how we would not buy Lily any toys. (and we really don’t)

That Lily would just have to entertain herself with sticks and stones. LOL

Well, sticks and stones are no problem for her.

Actually, she loves sticks and stones.

And sand.

And leaves!

At a playground full of swings and slides, Lily will just sit in the sand and play with it for a long while.

Or she will walk away and go towards the grass where she can find sticks and leaves.

She loves nature best.

I love that about her. ( I hope she stays that way)

ARTsy wednesday

Today’s artist is one of my favorite artists and you all know her.

I’m talking about Mother Nature.

I miss West Virginia and all the nature that surrounded me when we were there.

I miss the cool and dewy mornings, I miss the flowers, the butterflies, the fresh mountain air…

Here are some pictures from one of my nature walks when we were there in august.

Don’t you just love nature?

Rocks and water are so much fun!!

Before Lily was born, Will and I would joke about not buying any toys for her (because we hate most of the toys out there) and how she would just play with sticks and stones.

Well, she has turned out to be just that kid! (for now anyway)

No matter what toy we bring for her to play outside with, she much prefers to explore nature and play with rocks, sticks, grass, dirt, bugs.

She must have been listening after all…. 😉

Must have of the day

Just browsing through Inhabitots again, I found these great Green Start children’s books from Innovative Kids.

Books that help give children an awareness of the natural world? A “Must”!

Must have of the day

A backyard!!!!

I dream of a house with a yard. To plant, to explore all that nature has to offer…..

I think Lily dreams of one too. 😉

In the meanwhile, we will continue to explore our little “backyard” (the small area surrounding the pool in our building).

Here are some wonderful little curly vines that were hidden underneath the leaves in one of the bushes around the pool.
