Braelynn just loves nature and all that it has to offer. We were out on a Sunday drive going up towards Snow Lake, it was a very warm day. As we stopped for a picnic by the lake, she asked her papa if she could swim just a little as she needed to cool off. So she changed into swimming gear and was showing us how she could swim now as she is a big girl. As we were watching her, a few ducks decided to join her and she went along with them in a quiet manner and they didn’t seem to mind but more less enjoyed her company. She thought she was so cool swimming with duckies, but they didn’t talk to her as they only quacked. When we ready to leave she turned to us and said, can I have some bread? We asked her for what and she said I only need the bread as I need to feed my friends, they told me they were hungry. So she broke a part a piece of bread and made a trail for them to share her gift of friendship. Love her so much!
