Fun Friday is our Nature Study
which includes a nature walk…
It is always fun to explore a new area,
and since we recently moved,
our neighborhood, as well as our very own backyard,
is an excellent place to begin again.
Andrew and Bryson lead the way while Adelaide and her mommy joined us.
We found bees, grasshoppers, snakes, butterflies,
as well as some lovely flowers, lots of plum trees,
and some pretty cool succulents.
Daddy and the puppy are joining us this time!
we observed some random plants…
and the weather has been delightful thus far…
which makes for a good outing.
Some weeks are just plain busy, and you forget pics, right?
Last week was a bit of a crazy nature walk.
I have a friend who has begun to bring her homeschooled son (and infant daughter) over on Friday afternoons for some fun science activities, a speech presentation, and our nature walks. On this day I tried to mulit-task by going for our nature walk at the same time as heading down to pick up one child for afterschool care (I do not have the 3 sibling on Fridays, so this was a random drop in care). As this one child got off the bus, another child joined us as we ventured through the neighborhood. This round of adventure was about our local deciduous trees, so we took samplings of leaves, seeds, and bark as the opportunities allowed.
This round of a nature walk was in our very own backyard.
We, again, took samplings of the trees;
a piece of bark, a seed, and a leaf.
…then explored our findings!
Next month we will start our nature journals to our fun list as well.
Does your family stop to take a look at nature within the busyness of life?
Do you see the ever so small changes that take place around you?
Autumn is an excellent time to see God’s beautiful artwork!
