Ben at the Nature Center

I have begun a tradition of taking my grandson, Ben, to the Kalamazoo Nature Center every Fall. This year was our second annual visit. He enjoyed walking in the woods and looking up at the tall, tall trees. "It's huge!" he'd say while looking up.

While we were exploring the woods Ben discovered moss, which he declared "gross." He was also concerned about all the trees that have fallen down. "They got broke."

My plan is to take a photo of Ben with the Nature Center sign every Fall. I wonder how many years it will be before he's taller than the sign? That little Oh he's making with his mouth is the end of him saying smile, which comes out as "smy-oh."
