I love to take walks with the girls, and my goal is for us to walk at least 4 times a week. We usually alternate between running and walking, so that we get exercise and nature study time. Right now, we walk around 3 miles per week, but I'm hoping to eventually work up to 8 to 10 miles per week.
We really enjoyed studying this pine tree this week. It is covered in ants, sap, and spiders. E(4) was excited to break off pieces of sap to take home, and both girls took home pieces of bark to crush with their mortar and pestle (to use in their science lab).
O(7) insisted on us joining hands and playing ring around the Rosie around the tree...fun!
They were also really excited to take their babies on our walk. They are such good baby wearing mamas!
