our 7-year-old, Lincoln, loves to draw and write.  on a recent family vacation in california, he brought his box of special pens and markers and a notepad with him, as usual.  at some point in the week, he decided to fill the notebook with “notes” about california for his 1st grade teacher back home in breckenridge, colorado.  some of them are basic observations, and some of them sound a bit more scientific.  they subtly compare his surroundings in warm, sunny california with our mountain home that was still chilly and covered in snow when we left.  i wanted to share some of them with you — i hope you enjoy them as much as i do!
