Having your daughter tell you no less than THREE times that she’s having the best birthday party she’s ever been to.

Marcus and Claire found some interesting critters on our hikes on and around Mt Baldy and through Cowles Bog:


This dragonfly had just emerged from its chrysalis.  We were able to watch its wings dry out as it sat on Marcus' finger for about three minutes before finally flying away.

This millipede curled up when Marcus picked it up, but soon uncurled and began exploring the terrain on Marcus' arm and hand

Claire and I are participating in the Secret Keeper Girl study at church.  I wasn't quite sure what to expect and was a little worried it'd be a bit too 'girl-y' and cute – it turns out I'm so glad we signed up!

The theme is to set aside time for Moms and Daughters to talk about God's plan for each of us and to emphasize that as children of God,  we're his precious princesses.

This week we talked about how we're all beautiful in our own way and that our true beauty comes from the Lord.  We gave each other hand massages and shared the things we admired about each other.

The time itself was pretty simple and the activities weren't that big a deal — but taking the time to sit and talk about such important topics was awesome.
