Writers know the way we view things has a direct impact on our sense of accomplishment.
It may be a boulder to you, but Liam felt as though he'd conquered a mountain. Same way with writing a paragraph, poem or a story. Be proud of your work.
Liam was off school for fall break, so he and I hit up the playground, river bank, small animal park, and also Lone Elk Park, where herds of elk and buffalo roam freely. Visitors drive through.
"No thank you. What if they charge the car?" He was seriously concerned. When I convinced him we were safe, he looked out the window and we made observations about the largest, wooliest, etc.
"Nana, look! I thought that was a pile of poop way over there, but it's a baby buffalo."
Perfect opportunity to explain that buffaloes only eat grass, and the Native Americans even used the buffalo poop when it dried out to fuel their fires.
His mom said Liam talked all the way home about everything he had seen, learned, and done during the two days we spent together. He told her about touching velvety soft lamb's ear: the plant we found growing wild at the river, not the animal, and throwing rocks into the river, and digging in sand, and climbing a look out tower.
