“Our daughter was playing in the fields at her aunt and uncle’s house. In a quiet moment with ‘Bapa,’ her grandfather, Phoebe picked up some grass and started putting pieces of it into his pocket. Bapa just watched, amused. Phoebe loves to be outside. She’ll smell and pick up anything, from rocks and flowers to weeds and grass.” -CHELSEA
