We spent some time tossing around handfuls of cherry blossom petals in the breeze this evening. Hard to believe that one upon a time this kid wouldn’t even stand on a grassy surface with his shoes on! He’s always been unusually neat (for a toddler) and fussy about textures. It took us months to get him to touch grass with his hands at he discovered it for the first time as a baby. While I cringe a little inwardly whenever he gets very messy, I also rejoice when he is willing to explore the world around him.
