what i have learned

filed under: I Am Mommy on July 20, 2013


We are in a constant state of learning around here.

Learning about our new home.  Learning about our neighborhood and surrounding community.

About what grocery store is the best and where is the closest gas station.


About what window has the best view of the sunrise, and about what trail has the most wild flowers and least amount of deer flies!


by far

one of the best things we learned is that when it rains, big puddles form, and they are great for splashing.

Dad and Inga


And after some splashing and discovering and exploring…

we learn

that the best thing about our new home

is learning about it together.
