On the way to the mall today,  I asked daddy some questions about compasses. Little did I know that my curiosity about directions would get him excited enough to buy me one at the mall. What's more we found a cool orange one as part of a while discovery set! Complete with a little pack, magnifying glass, binoculars, flashlight and a bug viewing jar.

When we got home, he set up a treasure hunt for me, where I had to use the compass to find out which directions to walk and how many steps to take. After using my compass and his map, and walking about our house I found....

...this! The huge lollipop we bough at FAO Swartz in NYC during X-mas. Skye and I did a great job sharing it till we got a bit sick and saved the rest for later.

After a quick nap, daddy not us, we decided to take the discovery kit out in the great outdoors. (Our compound) I got dressed in my best explorer outfit and off we went.

We looked at bugs, in puddles, at trees, flowers and more. There were a few mosquitoes, but we understood that is the nature of nature and we carried on! We talked about education for girls and Daraja school. We talked about seeds and trees and the purpose of flowers. I asked questions and my asked more back.

It feels nice to spend time outside, look at things closely and ask questions.
