Well, we went on our first nature walk of the year today. It was a lot of fun! Hopefully, we will be able to make this a weekly event. One of the goals is to go to the same park every time and see how things change with the seasons. We have picked out a tree that we will particularly look at each time we visit and once each season, Vincent will draw it to show the differences for each season. We also took a leaf from that tree that we can put in his nature notebook along with his drawing and any other pictures he wants to put in from the visit. This is such a fun project, and I know both boys and dh had lots of fun, too!
Here's "our" tree:
Here's some pics of the creek that runs through the park...it has lots of these little waterfalls:
We found this rock that has "Jesus" written on it. I thought it would be pretty cool to have the picture when we study "Jesus the Rock."
I feel so blessed to live so close to such a beautiful park. Until we are able to move out of the city, at least we have somewhere nearby to just enjoy nature...a place to remind us how truly amazing God's creation really is! God is so good!
