::Nature Photo Friday::

Each Friday I will post a nature photo (or two…) from our adventures of the week. The photo will represent a moment that I want to remember, to take in the feelings of that outdoor experience. If you are inspired to do the same, share a link to your nature photo in the comments. There is so much beauty in the natural world to share, I hope you will join me!

stream exploration

{With spring-like temperatures upon us, the small seasonal stream in our backyard in now flowing. This has been a cause for much exploration. The kids don their rain gear and literally spend hours digging, splashing, observing, and pretending in the stream. The littlest likes to spend time throwing snow and sticks into the water and watching what happens. The middle one conducts her “research,” using a stick as her preferred tool to dig through the leaves, rocks, and silt at the bottom of the flowing water. An the oldest, enjoys working to build up the banks, hauling fallen sticks and branches to line the edges and digging with his garden shovel. Do they get muddy? Yep. Is it worth it? Yes. Every speck of dirt. Why? They’re having fun, using their imaginations, getting exercise, practicing observation and exploration skills, and learning about the world around them. And, really, what is one extra load of laundry?!}
