I'm late posting today. As you can see, we've been busy. We are taking the One Hour Challenge and spending an hour out in nature as part of our home schooling.
Originally, we were going to look for signs of spring, mammal tracks, insects, this sort of thing but we kind of got side tracked and as you can see in this video, the river is running high and fast right now.
I didn't dare take my eyes off Mr. J so I didn't take as many photos as I would normally have either.
We did however, gather several small rocks..
to make a flower. We found this old paper wasp on the river bank. It looked like the center of a flower.
We found a hole in the bottom of a tree....
so we had to make sure there weren't any scary critters in there.
We hugged trees.......
and climbed them.
We found a remnant of an old sunflower.... we cracked open some seeds and ate the meat and found out that we liked it.
We found an old rusty tin can........ perfect for filling with pine cones we found on the ground.
When it was time to go, we waved good bye to the ducks. The ducks stuck their bums up in the air and waved good bye to us.........
