On a walk.....


This is kathrynn and her lovely friend zoe, on a walk from our house to zoe's home.
I love the easy of movement that these two girls have as they walk down the street.....
I also love this picture as it shows the variation of sizes of children... zoe is a year older then kathrynn, but looks much more so in this picture :)
This picture also reminds me of a childhood friend i had, that was SOOO much taller then i was. :)

a day in the life of kathrynn

eats like a cow..... moos like a cow...... oh its just kathrynn :)



Occasionally Kathrynn has decided that being a cow, eating grass, is a pretty cool thing. So she'll get down on the ground, and go at it- eating that grass! I managed to luck out last week and capture her endeavors on the camera. :)

A little girl, her fairy house, and pet worm.....

One afternoon we found ourselves at a park and Kathrynn started to dig in some mud, which led her to build a lovely fairy house. :)







In time, with the digging, she uncovered a worm. She attempted to feed the worm to a nearby robin, which made me giggle. :)



....in this picture she is saying "ohhhh rooooobin, here is a worm for you to eat......"


Then she played with the worm, gently, letting it crawl over various parts of her body.

.She wanted me to take pictures of just how long this worm was!
In the end, she placed the worm inside her fairy house, where it lived happily ever after. :)

Lovely little somethng i came across

"Right now, and in every now-moment, you are either closing or opening.
You are either stressfully waiting for something - more money, security,
affection - or you are living from your deep heart, opening as the
entire moment, and giving what you most deeply desire to give, without
waiting."
~David Deida

Various Joy happenings around here..... :)

We've been pretty submerged in the marvels of spring and life here.....

We went to a waterpark last week and Kathrynn had fun exploring there, using her fish skills. :P
Our friend Skye was not feeling so well, but was a good sport. :)










Kathrynn at her friend Leslie's house... who has an amazing garden with many many flowers. :)

Kathrynn made a flower crown for her may pole dance #3, which i think was the most fun as she'd become an expert by then! She actually had 4 adults talk to her afterwards tell her how great she was at the dance, and how they followed Kathrynn's lead when they were feeling unsure on their next move. Kathrynn was beaming. :)

We met this lovely part Siamese, part DSH kitty at the animal shelter last week. Her name was Nora. :) I hope she got adopted!
Kathrynn has become a bit intrigued by the new freckles she is getting, so one morning she decided to circle or mark all of them with a marker. :)

Garden Joy :)

I'm SO excited by the progress of our square foot gardens! I have some other various things planted in pots on the deck, but my real pride and joy are the square foot garden boxes. :)

We've already begun to eat of out them!!!!! :)




Some of the beautiful flowers around our house and yard. :)




Creek joy, and trampoline joy too :)

Kathrynn and Skye have always had such big feelings for each other- and when i say that it is not always positive. :P
Either they love each other fiercely or they are swearing to never see each other again....

Luckily, *knocking on wood*, they have been getting along so wonderfully lately.... They had a great play date the other day, which led to a sleep over, which lead to another morning of fun. :)

I was feeling a bit too relaxed to take too many pictures, but i got some lovely ones at the park, and then at their neighbors trampoline. :)



Looking for fossils. :)







I love my friend Kt for jumping so much with the girls. They love her bounces. :)
