Now, before I proceed, you must understand the odds that were against her. First, we live in a small neighborhood. Second, it's built in a circle, so the only people that travel it are those that live on it. Third, based on my calculations, one car went by per one hour and 15 minutes. Fourth, there are so many trees, you can barely see the houses of our neighbors. No one could see her out there unless they happened to walk out onto the road.

So, what did we do the while the three of us were at the end of our driveway with nothing to do but wait? We poked around in the dirt, watched the birds, looked into the trees and at the sky, threw rocks down the driveway, went for a walk down the road, looked at a stream and discussed why there was no water in it (no rain for weeks) and watched shadows.
All told, Bean earned $2.50 towards her Gulf Coast fund and most of her customers were her own family members. But, we gained so much more! Another successful day during our 30-Day Outdoor Challenge, a memory that will last a lifetime, and another connection with nature.
What fun activity will we do tomorrow? You'll have to stop by to find out. :)
