nature hike





loving that rowan doesn't rest all the time when brinley naps these days. some days it just calls for special alone time with mommy, especially since he is away at school now. we don't even have to go anywhere fancy or spend money. in fact, most of the time we have way more fun when it is a simple thing such as a nature hike. i just love how his little mind creates such wonderful stories. it started out collecting things to build a volcano and somehow we ended up searching high and low for sticks to make into sling shots. you have no idea how hard it really is to find that perfect "Y" shaped one that is sturdy enough to string up. we did indeed find a few to bring home, i will post a pic when they are done in accordance with rowan's standards.

 rowan is pretty particular if you haven't learned that yet from reading. the kid is hilarious, he keeps me on track making sure i packed everything in his lunch, responded to his teacher's notes, and good grief he barks at me every morning to make sure he isn't late for school. i would go ahead and say he is more together than me. i love my time with him more than anything and i can't stand that he is growing up so fast! 




he wears: pants from little z kids // shirt from american apparel // back pack from mad pax // shoes from cre8tive rec // and arm hanky from polarn o pyret
