Today was a beautiful day. The temperature was higher than it has been in a while, around 1 degree Celsius so we decided to take advantage of it. We set out for a nature walk right after lunch. We also decided to complete another topic on the Outdoor Hour Challenge. We talked about the weather as we started our walk. It snowed yesterday a little bit, but already it was melting. We looked at the sky and talked about the clouds.
The farmer's field is bare right now, with little patches of snow.
I am always attracted by the simple beauty of nature (and take lots of pictures!).
The little path we take for our nature walks near our house is right next to the train track...and here it is!
There is a tiny creak by the path too. Andre wanted to see how frozen it was and if it was safe to walk on.
The creak covered in snow.
We found an abondonned nest.
The creak was the main attraction today...We tested the ice and found out that in the centre it was thick enough to safely walk on. I had a hard time at first with this, but I learned to relax and the children were safe and had a great time!
We even found animal tracks!
This was a wonderful afternoon spent outside, in nature. Every one enjoyed the fresh air and the walk, Orion too!
