:: pumpkin picking. we had our pumpkins out of the front porch and we saw a certain someone trying to set close to our pumpkins. it was mr.squirrel. we believe the same mr. squirrel from last year. so the pumpkins are in for the night, safe and secure in my little one's "workshop", her playstand area.
:: mining gemstones.
:: my little one always finds heart shaped rocks. she shared this lovely one with her father. only this one is not a rock. and we are up at the farm. humm... i wonder what this is?
:: identifying her gemstones. i think this book is what peaked my little one's interest in gemstones, crystals, minerals and any other rocks that may cross our path. while this book has beautiful photographs and descriptions, it is not the best book for identifying naturally occurring minerals. i recommend something like this or this.
