These two little people were looking for ants today. They aren't really too hard to find, and they were having fun catching them and observing them.
All of the children are very kind to all living creatures. Even the ants get treated kindly. They have all been taught that we are only allowed to step on them and kill them if they are in the house. If they are outside, then we try to be gentle. Sweet Pea was really interested in the tiny little sand ants.
Here she is, showing me the ant in her hand. Yes, I am very aware that I cannot see the ant. But she can, and while I snapped the picture, that was what was important to her.
So we tried again, but she really didn't want to take her focus off of the ant. Trying so hard to look at me, but she really just wanted to watch the ant.
Take 3! Oh, I love her to the moon and back again!
I am a wife, a mother, a friend. I own and operate my own family business, a licensed daycare in my home. I often say that I don't really work, which I don't, I play. Rod Black once said that if you choose a career you love, then you never have to work a day in your life. I know that I have done that. Children fascinate me, they have very intriguing behaviours and although I often think I need to evolve past the age of 5, I keep coming back to take care of all the little children. They are the lights of my life, and they help to make my life complete.
