Summer Nature Camp Week Three
It was another fun week at nature camp last Thursday. Reece went off with Justin for swimming lessons in the morning, so it was just the two girls and I in the woods. We had a great time eating wild raspberries, collecting nature treasures, checking out a new trail, and climbing trees. When we got home, Reece was back, and the kids played til lunch. After lunch we sat under the shade of a tree, and got busy with a few crafts. The first, sun catchers using flowers from our garden, and the second, a nature weaving using some treasures collected from the woods and around our garden. Both were a big hit.
The littlest hands of the camp enjoys picking flowers from my garden. She will walk around, picking what she likes, and come to me with a handful asking for a jar of water. She then takes time to arrange them just right in the jar, and then places them on the back deck table. It is a joy to watch her, and I hope the flowers bring a little happy to her home when she takes them home.
The biggest one of the camp got stuck in our apple tree. She loves climbing trees, and just kept climbing. At first she was pretty excited about how high she was, but then she tried to get down. A little worry set in, but nothing a step ladder and Justin couldn't fix.
We are in the final stretch of summer nature camp, just two Thursday's left. I have some fun things planned, and can't wait to share them with the kids, and you.
Hope you are enjoying your summer, and finding a few ways to bring a little fun into your days.
