“If a child is to keep alive his inborn sense of wonder without any such gift from the fairies, he needs the companionship of at least one adult who can share it, rediscovering with him the joy, excitement and mystery of the world we live in." - Rachel Carson

For the Birds

Last week my dad surprised us by coming down for a last minute lunch date, and he also brought along a fun project--a birdhouse to build with Rowan! For Christmas he had given her the pre-cut pieces and had drawn some plans to follow as well. Rowan loved hammering all the nails in and writing "Rowan's birdhouse" on the bottom. I was thrilled to see her so enthusiastic about building things--a nice departure from the current princess obsession! Thanks Gramp!
