While we wait for Beluga in her ballet/tap class, Indie is doing his phonics and math lessons. We are taking it easy between Thanksgiving and Christmas so this is a nice change. It’s breezy and about 80 degrees here in South Florida. Ahhhhhh 🙂
Brian tired very hard to catch a either a butterfly or a dragonfly but had to settle instead on a little beatle walking on the path. It worked out fine. 🙂
Little Miss J did pretty good drawing this flower for a 4 year old! I was impressed!
We’ve only just started nature journaling this year. I put everything in one binder for now. I have divided sections for each of them and a pouch to hold stuff to draw with and to collect things with. We’ll see how it goes. I’d like to do this at least once a week if we can. We are doing KONOS Attentiveness next which is a lot of nature stuff it should be good. Will be easier too getting out in the cooler fall/winter weather down here.
A couple of weeks ago, while on our evening walk, we noticed woodpecker holes in a dead palm tree. As we approached, we saw an adult woodpecker leaving the tree and I told the kids to go up to the tree and see if they hear babies. Sure enough! We could really hear them chirping away. We hung around for a while looking and listening carefully. A couple nights ago we stopped back by to check on them and my husband put his camera in the hole and took a quick photo. Looks like there are 2 live babies and one that didn’t make it. We’ll keep an eye on the tree/nest. I love seeing wild life and nature right in the middle our neighbor here in South Florida.
