and with it comes october

Today brings the end of our Spring holiday.
It's back to business and the rhythm that was before the ending of September.

But oh we've been feeling the Spring here in this time doing the little things.
Little things like mending some of our beloved friends.
Little things like collecting nature's treasures (of course) and creating with it. Printing and crafting creatures and critters, like dragonflies, bugs and palm sheath centipede puppets.
Little things like taking a trip to visit Grandma and Grandad on the farm to fly kites in the wind and to make new pals.
Little things like finding Grandad's new bridge in the forest and discovering the jewels of the milkweed tucked safely in his pumpkin patch.

And as today sees a brief ending to all those little things that we have been loving so much... with it comes October and all it's promise of more sweet things to come.
