1. I am so proud of us for getting out of the house this morning and all the way up the hill to the doctors with Bettany's sample.
2. The way Alec occasionally stops to pick up a twig or an old leaf "for Daddy". The way he stops to examine muddy places in case there is a bear footprint. The way he stares intently in the bushes and then tells me that there is bear's den in there, and that the bear is eating a little boy (a naughty boy).
3. Bees -- I'm suddenly noticing fat bees investigating sunny banks and rotten logs.
