Our nature walk

"Every child should have mud pies, grasshoppers, water-bugs, tadpoles, frogs and mud-turtles, elderberries, wild strawberries, acorns, chestnuts, trees to climb, brooks to wade in, water-lilies, woodchucks, bats, bees, butterflies, various animals to pet, hayfields, pine-cones, rocks to roll, sand, snakes, huckleberries and hornets; and any child who has been deprived of these has been deprived of the best part of his education."
Quote from Luther Burbank

We've been going on lots of nature walks this summmer. Today I finnaly brought my camera. L loves nature walks, We just take our time, follow her and let her go wherever she wants as long as it's not dangerous of course.

First we stopped at the butterfly house to say hello

  1. I loved nature walks when I was little. I like how you are teaching good outdoor habits with protective sun hat and water bottle -- that's shes even carrying herself!
