jitter bug.

our little bear cub is totally blossoming.
her little personality is coming out more and more with each day
and i must say it's pretty darn cute.
she is goofy with a capital g and we cannot get enough of her!
. . .and she's walking!
big time life changer and so much fun.
crank up the volume just a teeny bit, enjoy!

"there are many little ways to enlarge your child's world. 
love of books is the best of all."
- jacqueline kennedy
 i have heard great things about half priced books but had 
never stepped foot into one until yesterday.
june and i went in between her naps and found a new favorite place.
i'm still not positive if we found used books or what but either way this 
place is a wonderland for little readers.
we really loved it!
they were playing willie nelson, gotta love them for that.
they had books on their shelves that
 i had never seen for her before and 
it just had that good feel about it, 
you know the one?
the one where you just want to sit with her on your lap and read for hours.
her little new walking legs had a different plan, ha! 
still a great afternoon outing.
then on our way home our neighbor horses were out close to the 
fence grazing so we pulled over to say hello!
we are going to need to take them some apples soon and really get to know them.
junie was heartbroken to say goodbye but we'll be back.
 when we got back to the homefront for june's afternoon nap 
and we sat down to read her new reads, my heart felt so 
thankful for her little curious sponge of a mind.
i know all children are like this and are so eager to soak up 
whatever we give them but i think it's extra great 
when they soak up good books.
plus, the kindergarten teacher in me appreciates 
story time more than ever now. . . 
it's a full on production with every page we turn, like i'm vying for an oscar nod.
ha! june is going to be so dramatic.
love story time.

zoo day!

we took june to the zoo today and had the best time.
she was crazy about all of the animals and so were andy and i.
we can't wait to go back again!
"God made the wild animals according to their kinds, 
the livestock according to their kinds, 
and all creatures that move along the ground according to their kinds.
 And God saw that it was good." genesis 1:25

i'm not sure why we waited so long to have more
 pictures of our little family of three taken.
i guess it was worth the wait because i am in love 
with each and everyone captured below!
tara maples, thank you for capturing our family so well.
we will cherish these forever and always.
you are so talented!
