Marsh trail.

We enjoyed the sunny (but a bit chilly) weather yesterday. We started out with a walk on the marsh trails.

We were discussing what might live in this hole that we found.

Bug, trying to see what might be in the hole on this tree.

Another hole in a tree. Do you notice a theme yet?

One of the trees that Bug always looks for when we're on the trail. It's decaying and she enjoys seeing what has changed since last time...oh, and she counted 7 (I think) holes in & around this one.

This is another shot of the previous tree.

One more tree with a hole.

Bug saw a couple of geese on the water that were eating. She got out her nature journal and settled in to do a quick drawing.

When we were done at the marsh we climbed up the hill to Bug's favorite playground.

Not only can Bug cross the monkey bars by herself (mastered last year) but she's tall enough to get started all by herself. Yay!

Bug's dad gave her a pretty big push. She's holding on for dear life!

Today's outfit.

I just wanted to share Bug's clothing choices for today. I think it'll make you smile. Or laugh. Whatever.

Free Energy on Late Night with David Letterman

These guys played on Letterman last night. 3 of them (singer, bassist & lead guitarist) grew up in my hometown.

I updated the link as the previous one was taken down.

Molly the Barn Owl

We are hooked on this webcam. Molly is sitting on 5 eggs which should be hatching any day now.

Orange belt!

Bug had her orange belt test tonight. She was so excited! She did really well and stayed pretty focused. Here are some pictures from the evening:

Here she is with her new orange belt.

With her friend, Laurie who is a 3rd degree black belt.

Bug and Mr. T. This is serious business...

The best part of earning a new belt? Going to The Pearl for ice cream!!!

A look back...

I was looking at my old blog and thought that I'd share the pics that were there. Bug looks so little in them! In these photos, she's about 3 1/2.

In the first one, she'd been "painting" the sidewalk with water. This would keep her busy for a LONG time.

She then found a pile of leaves to play in. She decided that it was a volcano and in this shot, she is erupting out of the volcano.

Lastly, here is Bug working on making letters.

This next set is from Feb. 2006, so Bug is not quite 4 years old.

I had found a great pattern for a knitted/felted wizard hat. Bug, of course, had to try it on BEFORE it was felted...

I think that it fit just a little bit better after the felting...

Bug's dad was telling her about different kinds of wood and one day he brought some pieces home, along with some shellac. Here is Bug, experimenting.
And, finally, it's time to wash the dishes.

Polar Plunge!

Today was the Polar Plunge which raised money for the Special Olympics. Bug raised $125! Thank you to all who donated. Here's a photo of her team (from karate school). Together they raised over $6500!

Since she was "Too Chicken to Plunge", Bug got to hang out in the Chicken Coop.

At one point they had all of the chickens gather there to do the chicken dance. Bug wasn't sure what to think about that.

Here are the kids before the plunge. Look! Sand! They had to cut and remove a bunch of ice from the river so there was a place to do this. The good news is that the temperature was in the mid-40s today. The water temp, however, was 31 degrees.

I was only able to get one photo of the kids running in.
After the plunge, we all headed back to the karate studio for a party. Bug decided to make a bed and relax.
