lovely layah

Layah and I played on the beach after she got out of school this afternoon, picking shells and watching the sea creatures that inhabit the rocks as the tide goes in and out. At one point she held up a small shell and informed me that it was 1000 years old. Really? I asked. Wow! How can you tell? She shrugged as if it were the most natural thing in the world for a child to know and said that it was just the way it was with these types of shells . . . Who knew?
I couldn't help but snap this shot of her as the sun set: she was breathtakingly lovely in her lightly rumpled uniform and slightly frizzing braids :-)
