This Is What Almost 10 Looks Like

It was a gorgeous day today - 65 degrees and sunny!  What a change from the minus two degrees we started the week with.  Katherine and I went for a long walk in the woods.
We investigated tree bark...
and bird nests...
...and mud.
But mostly we just talked.
About her upcoming birthday.
About the new school she will attend next year.
About how the boys at school, who are her closest friends, only want to talk about "boy stuff" and how she has less in common with them now.
Through it all, Kate climbed every log and fallen tree she could find.
I love her sense of adventure.
She is such an interesting, complex person.
This is what almost 10 is like and it's pretty cool.
