A couple weeks ago we went down to the creek. We do this 3-4 times a week now that the weather is nice and the boys love it down there.  

Lots of wading! It took E a few trips to feel comfortable in the water but now he warms up pretty quickly when we go down.   

Wading along a little stream beside the creek.  

Beside the big bank where our trail from the house lets us down.  

E wandering around while C plays in the water.   

C on the island alone. It’s such a joy watching him become aware and safely independent and he loves the freedom.   

C’s pose. What a goofball!  

We found a crawdad (crayfish) leg.  

That night E was exhausted and fell asleep while I read to C on the floor.
