Saturday at home in West Virginia!

Mary and spent today at home. We had so much fun that I don't know where the day went. We began the morning with a quick walk to "Pebbleshire". Pebbleshire is an area behind the forbidden field. It has a stream that runs through it that Mary loves to explore. On our walk - we took a picture of the white horse that leaves down the street from our house. We had to cut across a field to get up close enough for a good picture. Mary was very nervous about this. She didn't want us to get shot. While taking the picture - my phone rang - it was Aunt Barbie. We quickly ran out of the field before we were noticed by any neighbors. We then continued on our way to Pebbleshire.

Mary rode ahead on her bike while I walked. We live in the perfect spot for an 8 year old to gain experience and freedom without being too far from home. Once we got to the stream - Mary found the perfect rock to paint. It was smooth, round and very heavy. I carried it home. We spent the rest of the afternoon working on our projects. Mary painted her rock and I worked on a quilt project. Mary will finish her rock Sunday afternoon.

Charlie Cat spent most of the day asleep on Mary's bed. He did join us in the late afternoon while I video taped Mary riding her bike to Nadia's house.

Our day sounds a tad bit dull but it was perfect for the two of us. The weather was crisp and the daffodils are in bloom. Happy Day!

Those pictures remind me of the commercial I hear on the radio. "West Virginia, wild and wonderful!"
