Elegy for the season

Last week I took the girls to studio craft time at our favorite toy store. Bean-girl picked up a leaf in the parking lot and brought it inside with her. After painting two pictures in the craft room, she traced the leaf on a piece of paper, and drew a big circle around the leaf-trace to represent a tree. She drew a bird in the tree. And in the corner of the picture, she drew a red flower.

Bean-girl said the picture was a story, and the woman supervising craft-time kindly wrote Bean's story on the back of her paper.
The last flower of the season. There is a tree and it is raining and it is the last flower of the season.

I'm totally impressed with Bean-girl's grasp of the changing seasons.

What an amazing age!

How sweet. And complex! Maybe she'll be an ecologist... :)
