Lily is always making little fairy houses out of sticks and leaves so I decided to build her a fairy garden. Someplace she could grow flowers, decorate, and play with as she pleases. I built it, Christi picked up the accessories, and Lily picked out the flowers. It was a family project and should be fun all […]
Lily really wanted to go on a bike ride today so I agreed to. She wanted to ride to school which is about one mile away and that didn’t sound too bad at all. However, on the way to school she took a right turn onto the Luce Line Trail and we were off on an […]

Our neighbor finds caterpillars and helps keep them safe while they turn into beautiful butterflies. They’ve been sharing the experience with Lily and tonight she got to let one go.
