We got a pair of binoculars to help with birding, and at our first opportunity to use them I see a flock of Cedar Waxwings. Unfortunately before I can get the binoculars focused, they flew away, so we spent some time looking at stationary objects. Then Anna runs off with them to go explore. When she comes back, her face is lit up and glowing, and I can't wait to hear what new delights she's been seeing. "These things are amazing!", she says. "I can see our new neighbors just like I'm in their yard!"
Ummm... Not exactly what we got the binoculars for... I say something about not spying, and she says, "I wasn't spying; just looking." You got to love kids.
