Great post. I had similar experiences this winter with my daughter, who just turned 4 this April. She was racing across the snow (I had to go slower as I kept breaking through) identifying droppings and tracks.
So during one of these adventures, we were at my parents’ place in Wisconsin, and there is one spot on his property that tends to hold lots of rabbits (it happens to be right under his propane tank). So we walk by, and there was a large pile of rabbit droppings. She just looked at me in absolute awe and said “Wow Dad, I’ve never SEEN this much rabbit sign.” I laughed (in all your days, huh) but I was really about the proudest guy in the county that day.
Thanks for sharing and here’s to starting them young!
