We had friends over this week. We shared our mud, our bees, and some chips and guacamole with them.
Our little girls love each other so much. It’s the sweetest thing. And the boys: they only took a few minutes to take off for the woods together.
Our time with the bees was especially amazing, watching the children shed their fear, my own kids included. (Well, actually one certain nine year old girl was clearly never afraid of any old honeybees.)
Because what do you do when you only have two bee jackets and a crowd of children anxious for an up close peek? Well, you take turns. But sometimes that isn’t enough. In that case, you just walk right up and watch the bees working their magic and you realize that you aren’t afraid; that there isn’t anything to be afraid of. I think we all gained a new level of confidence on this day.
Come back soon friends! We miss you already.
