Donner Creek

Nature Study does not always have to be a formal observation and journal routine.  Sometimes, just getting outside to enjoy and appreciate God's great creation is all the education our children need.

On this day we camped ourselves near a bridge at Donner Creek  to play "pooh sticks," swim and meander up and down the stream. We are so blessed that "our own backyard" has so much to offer.

What does "your backyard" have to offer that you can enjoy before the fall chill sets in?

We've been enjoying countless hours on the porch with chalk and bubbles.

What a great area to have ... and it's awesome that you're giving your kids time to enjoy it! I featured your post at the Living Montessori Now Facebook page:
