I like this ball I got for my birthday from my friend Amy. I came outside to play with it in the front yard. When I drop it by the little hill, it roles down and I go pick it up at the curb. It feels good to use my muscles differently and to go fast. For a little break I climb up onto the little table and then slide back down on my belly. It is a little sunny but not very hot, so I am wearing my bear coat.
While I am outside, I touch some nature. It rained here a lot while I was gone, and the grass is tall with little flowers. I pick some brown mushrooms and look at all the parts, top and bottom. I am very careful not to eat the pieces because some mushrooms are poison. But they are okay to touch. I just rinse my hands off really well.
I go around the corner into the garden and smell the purple flowers. Bees like smelling lavender, and I do too. You can’t touch bees because it will scare them and they will poke you, even though they look furry and soft. I push flowers to Mama to smell. We taste the mountain strawberries that are growing under the flowers.
