I got this picture today of Ethan...he hardly ever takes a nap anymore. But, today he fell right to sleep. He just looked so sweet...and look at those eyelashes! He seems so grown up lately and I just love how "little" he looks here.....

Ethan is officially a Jr. Ranger. He was "sworn in" on Sat. after our last program for the summer. They found all kinds of cool stuff in the stream...salamanders, craw dads, water bugs, frogs, etc. We all learned a lot. Then we had a picinic and walked up to the Walker Sisters Cabin. We learned some stuff up there from a nice lady. She told us that they used to paper their walls with flour paste and newspapers. I would've never noticed the newpaper on the walls if she hadn't pointed it out. It was great day!

Today we went to the Little Greebriar School for the jr. ranger program. It was really neat. "ms. robin" was raised by one of the walker sisters and had a cool presentation about the school. She was very knowledgeable. Before that we went on a little walk behind the school where Ethan saved my life. I stepped off the trail to get a pic of spider web and he started yelling "snake!". I looked down and a snake was about 12 inches from my foot. I've been told it was a copperhead. Afterwards we went to walk up to the walker sisters cabin but were told that a bear was on the trail headed our way so we turned around. We still had a lot of fun.
