    Nature Collection

    Some days we spend an hour or so outside exploring and just enjoying our time. Others we may be out for only 10 to 15 minuets before the heat has us baked. Florida heat is not a joke. It’s especially hot for a toddler that is running around nonstop and won’t sit for even a second. Luckily October is here and it’s getting slightly less hot, I can’t really say cooler. We are able to spend more time outside at longer stretches of time which makes for a much happier kid later in the day. Dorian is a nature kid for sure. He loves exploring around and finding cool new…

So unfortunately we will not be exploring this close any more. Now I understand why the playground is in its own fenced in area. He found this cool stick and wanted to add it to the collection too. Then he wanted it all back. The sign post…

    This one is actually a 2 day collection. The smallest hive we found the day before when he pulled an iron pole out of the ground (he is insanely strong) and knocked the fence cap off. It was hiding underneath the cap. The largest hive he brought to me while I was straightening up and I freaked. Fortunately, it was an old evacuated hive. If you look closely you can see a dead wasp still half way in the comb.  The flower he gave to me while exploring around his pool. Daddy was already instilled chivalry into his little brain. We make it a point that he does nice things…
