Lucinda found a dead squirrel in the back yard today. She was quite fascinated by it, since she likes all animals. We explained to her that the squirrel had died, and then we held a funeral for it. We dug a hole and put the squirrel in it. Lucinda picked some flowers to put in the hole alongside the squirrel, and then we covered it up. She then picked out some rocks to make a headstone for it.
We took Lucinda to her first movie today. It was the IMAX Dolphins movie (www.isci.ca/EN/imax/films-dolphins-index.htm) showing at the California ScienceCenter (www.casciencectr.org) in Exposition Park. She liked the dolphins, and she was only frightened a few times when there were particularly loud sounds. Overall, she said that she liked it.
