This morning I decided to go for a little “color hunt” with my daughter who is 4 years old. I thought it would be fun if she pointed out every different color she could find and I would take a photo of it. She was very excited about this idea so off we went to explore the neighborhood.
First we found green.
Then reddish greenish.
Then we found blue.
And a teeny tiny bit of pink that she was very excited about.
We also found a couple of other treasures on our hunt.
We found a tree about to sprout some leaves.
And a busy little bee.
We had been wandering the neighborhood in a direction we don’t normally go when we found the greatest treasure of all.
What?! Someone had put this amazing free little library box in their yard! How had we never seen this before?! Take a book. Leave a book. Isn’t that the greatest idea you’ve ever heard of? My daughter was so excited to pick out a book.
So we sat down on the curb and read it. What a magnificent and unexpected treasure. And what a sweet morning.
On tomorrow’s agenda? Go deposit one of our old books. LOVE THIS SO MUCH. It made my day. And hers too.
