Childhood means a lot of different things around here. It means painting, creating, and inventing new games to play. It means being outside and going on adventures together. It means reading new books inside blanket forts in the living room and under shade trees in the yard. It means being free to just play and be little for as long as possible.
But for one little girl it also means running inside declaring "a snake fell out of a tree and I have to go investigate but I need the rest of my safety gear first" and rushing out again. Just as it should be, childhood means imagination.
I know these moments won't last forever so we're enjoying them while we can and looking forward to the next adventure to come.
