Mummy's Little Naturalists

On our hike yesterday, when we got to the beach, Margaret and Ellie both grabbed the notebooks in their backpacks -- you remember their backpacks, that they had to have so they could have water?  Well, they needed writing utensils as well.

Margaret announced her intention to write the names of the things that she saw so she wouldn't forget them, and figured out all by her lonesome how to spell log.  I'm very proud.  She asked me how to spell  lake.  So she got those things recorded properly.  

And when, in the car on the way home, I asked her what her favorite part of the day was, she said that it was writing down what she'd seen.  So that's something.  I'm not sure what that says about how much she enjoyed tearing around, but writing is fun.

Ellie wanted to participate as well.

Unfortunately, she got stuck for a word.

It's very hard to be 2 when you want desperately to be 4.
