A walk in the ... woods

We have found ourselves wandering off for little walks in the woods lately now that spring has arrived.  

And no wonder, when

.... is so inviting!

The fresh air, exercise and sunshine are wonderful, and enjoying God's creation with my boys is even better!

Today we...

 - talked about not eating anything from outside unless you are absolutely
positively sure it is safe, and an adult has told you it is ok.  (Dale found some flowers he thought were honeysuckle.)

 - saw a baby oak tree, less than 6 inches tall, with tell-tale acorns scattered around it.  The ones that
didn't make it into trees.

 - listened to birds

 - found tadpoles in a puddle

 - spotted several butterflies

I don't know... this could turn into a habit I really like!  :)

Sounds wonderful! I miss where we used to live. We had 75 acres of land to hike on.
