Sunnier Days

Well, we have had some more sunny days here! Figuratively and literally! I remembered some nature trails at a park down the road and REALLY wanted to get the kids there for a walk in a real forest. So, we finally had a sunny day on Saturday and fit in our forest nature walk after our Sam's Club run. It was great...we could discuss pretty much everything we had learned about forests! We identified the canopy, understory, shrub layer, floor, saw a frog and birds, ferns, fungi and berries... Then we made some leaf cookies to conclude our forest study (this actually happened a few days later...would have been nice if it occurred on the same day, but no chance of that!)!
