I was very pleased when Bear came up to me this weekend, his little hands outstretched, face beaming. In his palms he held some small squash seeds. He was so proud. I asked him where he got those. He told me that the dried gourd on our mantle had fallen down and broken, and that he was saving the seed from inside, because it grew more food, and that it was important to save seeds.
I am proud of my Bear, very proud.
