40/365

joy of LOVE 09: passions or hobbies

The boy loves to 'collect' things. He has a backpack full of coral, pockets full of rocks & sticks. He hangs on to anything he deems worthy of a collection. There isn't a high standard. Every time we go to the park (almost daily) he adds to what he calls his nature collection. Basically anything outside can go into this collection. Leaves, sticks, pine cones, flowers, branches... you get the picture. My only rule is, it (mostly) can't come in the house. :)
