I love the outdoor classroom...

Yesterday was a beautiful day, so the kids and I headed to the park to take some pictures and just spend some time enjoying nature on a beautiful day. The ability to take advantage of days like yesterday is one of my favorite things about homeschooling.

We watched the squirrels.

We studied the rocks.

And we found a perfect example of phototropism, a term we studied earlier in the year.

We took a class picture.

And we enjoyed the beautiful colors of the season, (and tried to stay away from that huge bumblebee in this bush).

There's just something irresistible about rocks in a stream...

...and sticks.

  1. I truly think I live in some other universe! Our liliac bushes are just starting to sprout tiny leaves, and the maples just got red buds. Today I saw the first daffodil. I am so happy you can spend the time outdoors! And I love creeks!

  2. Cool pics! Love Thing 3's expression! Lovin' it!
