It had been a short night. Exercise had left me more tired, not energized and I really just wanted to curl up with a heating pad. But, as we walked to our door, the sun peeked out for the first time in a couple days and turned the courtyard into liquid gold as it lit up the leaves that had fallen during the rainstorm. Without hesitation I asked Nathan if he wanted to head back there and look at the leaves. He grinned his answer.

It’s so simple really. Take what nature gives you, explain it simply to a child, and oila! Science class!! We explored all around the courtyard, looking at big leaves and little, brown leaves and gold, and even touching a temporary rain puddle just to see how it feels.

It was about 15 minutes which is all you really need when your not quite 3.

But it was perfect.
