"Men give me credit for some genius. All the genius I have lies in this: When I have a subject in hand, I study it profoundly. Day and night it is before me. I explore it in all its bearings. My mind becomes pervaded with it. Then the effort which I have made is what people are pleased to call the fruit of genius. It is the fruit of labor and thought." ~Alexander Hamilton

I know this will come as a surprise to some people, but Emma Sage is a genius........she may not be a genius as depicted by standardized tests, or academic grades....but she is a genius on life. On the observation of life around her. She studies things, she explores things......she puts effort into everything she does. She is a genius of life, and I'm so thrilled to be enjoying the journey with her, as she opens my eyes to so many ordinary things that seem to get over looked.

Otto and Emma Sage love to explore....especially, at our pond. At this outing, they were collecting frog egg sacks to bring back up to the house, so we could witness the development cycle of frogs, from eggs to tadpoles to frogs!! What fun, except the part about trying to keep the cats away from the bucket....lol!! They thought it was 'dinner'!

Ohhh I love watching frogs grow! Is that the net we gave her last spring? Glad to see it is coming in handy! Hope to see you sometime this summer!
