Receiving September, Day One

Today we welcomed the new month by beginning our first day of my new September Nature Curriculum.

We started our day with our Morning Blessing:

Then I read the girls the story of The Anxious Leaf. Keira was hanging on to every word and really enjoyed the story. We then sat down to do watercolor painting…

Keira said she thought the leaf’s dream was about once again being part of the tree. Maia, who is too young to understand that type of concept, decided to paint a pretty picture of the leaf.





Then we went on our nature walk in the woods behind our house. They took their baskets along and looked for small items to collect for their Nature Notebooks that we will make later in the week. We were lucky to have a really nice day to enjoy outside.

    In the 1st picture, is that you taking the pic? Looks like you got the same camera as me, a Fujifilm Finepix S700 🙂 Do you?

    God bless,

    The books look GREAT! I like how you used the rafia. Very nice!

    My 10 year old daughter has been doing a unit on collecting samples from nature and then sketching and identifying them. Maybe we'll create a book like that for her sketches! I love getting new ideas!
