Nature Girls


All of my children enjoy being outside, but it seems like the twins are more interested in everything outdoors. They cry to go outside, cry when others go out and leave them behind. They like to “help” in the garden, dig in the dirt, move rocks, pick up bugs and snails, and take time to smell the roses or whatever flowers they find. They don’t mind getting dirty and want to touch everything. Grandmother has started calling them her little nature girls.

Sissy found a snail this morning but didn’t want to show it to me for a close up photo.

Grandmother has a huge wildflower bed, and the girls love to look at the flowers and pull the petals off. Little Sister is looking closely at the petals in her hand.

I don’t know if we will ever have any ripe tomatoes because the twins like to pick them when they are green. This photo shows Sissy trying to put a tomato back on the vine after picking it.

Here are several random photos I’ve taken over the last two months of them enjoying the great outdoors.




The next two were taken after we got home from Big Sister’s kindergarten graduation, so they are a little too dressed up for playing outside, but as soon as we got them out of the car, they grabbed their tools and headed for the driveway.



This last one was taken at an arboretum, where they had so much fun being outdoors, seeing flowers, running in lush grass, chasing a squirrel, etc.



About Leslie

I am a mother of four, who loves organization but is dealt a new hand of chaos each day. I love Jesus and each of my unique children. I strive to foster these relationships and bring a little organization to our chaotic home. I want to be a better blogger, but, truthfully, this is just not as high on my priority list as the aforementioned relationships or the state of our home.
