On Friday, Micah, Annalyse, and I enjoyed a morning out on the prairie. We gathered at our local nature center and loaded onto a wagon for a ride across the prairie. Micah kept a sharp eye open for "a bear or a deer or a bird or something that will knock your socks off" along the way, and Annalyse kept her jabbering babbles to a minimum and was content to just look around.
I think Annalyse was initially a little bit nervous about our adventure and I noticed she kept a firm grip on Micah's hoodie for a while. Oh-so-cute on the one hand, and "Mom! Annalyse is scratching my neck!" on the other hand.
He captured a few shots of these millipedes but he warned the other kids "not to touch them because they will sting you. I learned that on Wild Kratts." I'm not sure if that was true or not, but it was fun to listen to the ripple effect of kids warning each other not to touch the millipedes.
