In Which Pearl Discovers Acorns

At my in-laws' house yesterday afternoon, Pearl found some acorns for the first time. It is experiences like this that made my old job teaching toddlers at a preschool worthwhile, and made me look forward to sharing them with children of my own. I love witnessing her explore and discover all the wonderful things in the world around her. She picked the acorns up and dropped them and found them again, her grandmother showed her how some had little caps, she rolled them across rocks and stashed them in a hole in a rock, and she tried to work her mouth around the syllables as we told her, "That's an acorn!" And then she attempted to eat them.
