Some of my earliest and fondest childhood memories are working outside in the yard with my grandmother....Nana.
my not-quite-two-year old grandson, was visiting me for a few weeks
recently, I decided that it was not to early to "plant" some of these
outdoor memories in his heart. Everyday when I came home from work Chase
wanted to "dig" in the small redwood boxes where I plant my garden. He
was obsessed with digging for worms. "Mr. Worm" he would whisper as
he watched for the squirmy little creatures to appear. We went on snail hunts, listened to the wind chimes, watered the garden, picked & ate oranges and tended to the bunnies....Joe & Easter Bunny love to eat kale.....lots & lots of kale.
It is my hope that someday he will remember this time with his Dodo (me) learning to love nature. I made a scrapbook page using our new POCKET PAGES™ that hopefully he will see someday.
