Exploring Houdek Dunes with Suzie.
Trees still holding tightly to their buds.
Moss emerging from piles of slowly melting snow.
The earth starting to smell like sweet spring.
We had a glorious day for a hike up to Clay Cliffs. It was a little field trip to spring before winter returned!
Thanks for taking our family photo, James!
This is a little catch up from 10 days ago when we spent a glorious afternoon at Houdek dunes in the midst of color and light and warmth. We read “Amos and Boris,” by William Steig (one of my all-time favorite children’s books), painted with watercolors, and picnicked. Yes, we have soaked up so many of these beautiful days this fall. I hope they will help carry us through the darker, colder months ahead.
We walked up the Whaleback trail this morning and found some of the first autumn leaves. The girls are so eager to show Wallace how to dip leaves in beeswax! Ellen said, “There are so many exciting things for him to discover!” Yes, indeed.
Leo Creek was our classroom this morning.
