When the Explorer, 6, returned from recess, he carried with him a surprise for me.  He presented me with a bouquet of fragrant wildflowers he’d picked from our yard.  😉

Wordless Wednesday – Hungry Hummingbird

I was fortunate to capture this image of a hummingbird last summer.  These tiny creatures are not that easy to photograph; they move quickly.  I took many photos in a row without pausing, hoping that one of them would turn out.  And one did.

The Architect, 8, came up with this nifty idea for a place to carry his Lego Sword: with a Lego piece attached by his belt.

Sword slides right in and stays in place. 🙂
