green grass

Green grass. Blue sky. White clouds. Sometimes we just sit on the porch and listen to the wind blow, watch the trees sway in the wind…Sophie takes every last bit of it in. She sits very quietly and still. Just taking note of the beauty of nature. I hope she grows  to enjoy nature as...
