This morning we dropped G off at her (Asheville Arts Center) morning out program. Then M and I went to Weaver Park. She played on the swings while I got gloves and a bag out of the car and started picking up little odds and ends of trash. They were really only tidbits, as the park is immaculately kept!! Anyway, I guess swinging got boring, cause M started scouting litter for me. On her path she found and correctly identified a praying mantis with great excitement.
Shortly thereafter, we headed home to snack on soy milk and cookies we baked yesterday. Now she's making cards for upcoming birthdays, etc...while I research a martial arts program for her to begin in the fall.
Of course we drove, I used a plastic grocery bag to gather the trash, and the cookies were Pillsbury dough, but we've come so far since suburban Charleston!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
