Dakota is just a cool kid.
The other day, he and I reviewed how to make cordage and dolls with cattail leaves, and he took to it with enthusiasm. After only a few tries, he's become the expert. In fact, he decided to pull me out of the house to gather more leaves in preparation for other variations of his creative ventures.
The skills are wonderful in their own right, but it's even better to go outside and spend time in nature. Of course, we also got some great photographs.
