My little nature girl has found her niche among the tiny critters and tall trees of the forest. The past two Saturdays she has been our guide on hikes at the Richardson Nature Center in Bloomington. Her whole face lights up at the sight of a newly discovered leaf or a teeny tiny acorn and my bag is full of her new "treasures". The uniqueness of children will never cease to amaze me...

I've been scanning some of your blog, and I just thought I would tell you that Craig is a DIE hard Buckeye fan!!!! I mean DIE HARD!!!
Carter is now one as well, so we have been forced to 'sport the gear' over here at the Z house!!! ha!ha! He grew up in Toledo, and has been a fan of them and the Browns since he was a boy.....
