Lake Padden is a wonder-full place to explore in any season. January brings the promise of fresh beginnings (and fancy mating plumage for many birds). We will be searching for the first signs of spring this month. Do you think we'll find any? As in many aspects of life, some beginnings are so tiny, so subtle as to go without notice unless you slow down and take a close look. The wonder-full thing about exploring with young children is their ability to see the world in all its detail - and be fully present in the moment.
