Today this little fellow has kept us company:
The powerful transformation in the nature in the spring is, to me, magical. And hugely enjoyable.
There is loads to look at that gives reason to much more interesting biology lessons than I ever had at school: Today spotting the baby squirrel made us talk about the animals that hibernate, the birds that emigrate to the south and the animals and birds that just adjust to the winter, eg by changing their fur. All this because the 3 yo noticed the squirrel was part grey and part brown. And there is so much more to spot and to explore, just turning some stones to check if there are worms underneath can be sooo exciting. I think kids attentiveness is often a great reminder to enjoy all the small wonders of life!
