Fall Hike with Cake

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.

Toni, this sounds like such a great idea! I feel like I box myself in and things get a bit boring sometimes. I'm working on it, though, and trying to work in some fun things, too!! Who says learning has to be book work??!!

Blessings to you and yours, sweetie!
