Dirty Fingers, Lovely Butterfly


So the fingers are dirty*, but the butterfly is lovely. This was taken at the huge anniversary/birthday party for the kid's great grandparents. It was at a park, complete with a fish pond, so of course the kids and their cousins wasted absolutely no time in getting dirty. Bannanarama, my little naturalist, found this butterfly flapping its wings and taking a rest inside the screen house.

It was released shortly after these pictures were taken, of course.

*My philosophy has always been that being a dirty, dusty, and muddy kid at the end of the day was a sure sign of a day well spent. :)

I like your philosophy, I feel the same way! I think we all learn a little better when we get messy:)
