It’s the First Day of Summer!
Yes, I am a total slacker when it comes to Nature Study. I am a bad Charlotte Mason mommy-teacher.
We love being outdoors and we do talk lots about nature and plants and critters, but I just never seem to document any of it or have drawing pages at the ready. And it’s hard to snap photos while holding a squirmy 30-pound almost 15-month-old (as you can see from the blurry images)!
I have lurked on The Blog for many months and I finally got in gear today to do something productive. We did study dandelions last week, but alas, no photos.
We explored our yard in earnest this morning. Here we have a happy little spider on the spirea. He had lots of buddies hopping around too! Katie just loved him and drew him on her page (see below).
Excited to see our roses about to bloom!
The last of our lilacs. So pretty!
Radishes galore. Katie adores radishes and begged to plants lots and lots. A red lettuce off the side (that’s mine!)…
The girls wanted to do nature notebooking.
Here is Tori’s Summer Drawing page. She drew our neighbor’s cherry tree, with a bird’s nest, strawberries, flowers, and radishes.
Katie drew a rose, spider, red pepper, and lilac.
How do you celebrate the first of summer?
I love Productive Homeschooling for notebooking pages.
