Our summer here was full of so many things. I think one of the more memorable things for me will be that this was the summer of bugs and critters for our boy. He's always had interest in them, but this was the year he was brave enough to touch them and pick them up. Most of the time - there were a few exceptions. This was the summer that made me get over my fear of the creepy crawly things too. I can't really expect my boy to explore and look closer at the creatures if his mama says "ewwwww, get that away from me" every time he shows interest in a wee little creature, no matter how many legs it may have. I have my exceptions too, though.
Thanks, Molly, for this great idea for winding down the last week of the season and transitioning into the new (at least for some of you).
Please feel free to join in sharing your summer memories with everyone during the week.
