Picnic Nature Study


We had a chance to go to the river yesterday with our friends. We brought along a picnic and had a fun time exploring things.
The kids were very intent on a little sticky, egg case or seed pod...something. It looked pretty gross to me but the kids thought it was very cool. Mitchell sketched it and Avery wrote down as many facts as she could about it. While O got up close and personal with the magnifying lens to see if she could figure it out.

The river was beautiful....i love the clouds, all gray and dark!!!

i think J was loving the cracker. She had it all over her face as proof.
Is this face cute or what? E was telling me all about the boat that we were watching on the river. And he meant every word of it.

I and the kids love being outside. Becket always wants to "hike". They find the most interesting stuff!
