On Monday we took off for a hike and a cake picnic at Jerusalem Mill a local park and living history area near us. WE took a store bought cake our lunch some art supplies and off we went. Daisy came along with us too she loved it. I got the idea of doing the cake from another local homeschooling mom.We had a great day no rushing anywhere we strolled to our hearts content, climbed trees, and just had fun. I am thinking we need to do this more often, the children learned alot and the time together was refreshing for us all. I am being made very aware that he success of our school depends on me and my attitude, I need to look past the effort- not much really- and just do these things.
we saw some cool bugs and found a new trail to wonder on a bit.
we saw lovely flowers , black walnuts and interesting berries these grew on a stalk on the ground anyone know what they are?
Shawn wore out and got a piggy-back ride from his big sister.
We went back to the picnic tables and had our lunch and cake and did some leaf and bark rubbings,and played in the stream a bit.Unfortunately my cameras battery died- doesn;that always happen- so no pictures of that.
