We have been trying to enjoy nature more this week.
Summer will soon be over.
I was a little “camera happy” on our nature walks through the yard.
Marissa had fun with her walking stick. I had to limit her play time with it (or she would have took it to bed that night).
Below is the girls’ butterfly friend, “Blue-ie”. He is one of the many, many (un)lucky butterfly, skippers, or moths who enter our yard. The butterfly bag has to be randomly checked by mom throughout the day for lonely-winged-friends who have not yet been set free!
The girls had to illustrate and write about their favorite things to do and see in the summer. It included: swimming, flowers, butterflies and flip flops!
Mr. Praying Mantis showed up on our window and ended up spending some time being observed in a box. Now we plan to complete our studies about the mantis using Apologia Zoology – Flying Creatures.
Join Betty each Tuesday for the Nature Study at Peace Creek On The Prairie!
Tune in for our weekly wrap up with MFW Adventures and Little House Happenings!
