There is no question about it…my son is all boy. He loves trains, planes and anything transportation related. He is immediately drawn to rocks, sticks, bugs and worms. However, when we lived in Philadelphia, we had limited access to all of those wonderfully dirty things that he loves to submerge himself in. There was only one tree on our street and absolutely no grass. We have moved out of the city and, even though it is only a 25 minute drive from our old house, my son has access to a whole new world. The house has a few acres of land, mostly wooded, and came with a small red barn plus a tractor so we are already feeling a little “Green Acres”. We can now go on daily walks in our backyard so he can search for frogs, salamanders, snakes, and even spot some deer. It is exciting to watch him explore his new surroundings and watch him be enthralled by it all.
On a side note, my husband, who has been as equally excited by the tractor as my son, has been great at maintaining our new property. It is a big deal to go from now grounds to take care of to acres and he has been doing a great job. Thanks Baby! Also, a shout out to our friend, Carl, who is also on the tractor in this post. He has been a huge help with so many aspects of our new place…we would be lost without him. Thanks Carl!!!
