My Nature Loving Children~ {Nature Walk Wednesday}

We gathered around our table for Bible and prayer before heading out into nature for inspiration to draw and paint~

Everyone pulled on their rain boots and instead of me leading this nature adventure, they lead me! Back into the woods we went~
 They shared their hideout where they play Boxcar Children collecting trash treasures~
 They crossed logs and stood at the foot of the base of a tree that fell over in the wind~
 They scampered down a deep embankment into the creek~
 AND the scariest part for me was watching SJ walk across a fallen log covered in ferns {over the creek} to the other side AND back~
 She was quite proud and I was quite relieved!
They swung from vines and pointed out the back of our house~
 They showed me all the collections and  beauty in our backyard~
 We ended up at our big outside table to listen to a cute story Mr. Gummy's Outing~
While sketching and painting about our own.
We are SO thankful the weather is giving us beautiful springlike days outside!!!

"We are all meant to be naturalists, each in his own degree, and it is inexcusable to live in a world so full of the marvels of plant and animal life and to care for none of these things."    ~ Charlotte Mason
