the project got started a while ago, and while i tend to often disregard the happiness around me, this is leading me to it. i have taken tuesday's to take a quick stop, be still and enjoy the happiness in my life.
a rainy day and all the snails are out and about. of course this lets a child's heart beat wildly fast and the collector in our family has had a very happy afternoon!
here just a few examples of the beauties naomi collected. it was not just bringing all the species to the same rock. the snails were also set up to "race" and then at some point my girls interest got diverted and the big and small of them all found their own way "home" again.
