Today Grandpa took us sledding. It was just the right size of a hill to get lots of rides in. I was impressed with how quickly Clara and John were able to break the shoe strings and go down on there own. It makes me more confident that if I took them skiing they would do well and have a good time.
Butterflies are known for their unusual life cycle that includes a spectacular metamorphosis from caterpillar to a colorful winged adult. They have an erratic yet graceful flight pattern that attracts attention when they pass. The Ancient Greek word for butterfly is psȳchē, which means soul. I particularly admire their symmetry and kaleidoscope of colors.
