Nature Study Co-op

We recently started a nature study co-op with a good friend and her children. Today we went to a beautiful gardens area where the kids observed and drew what they saw!

Observing nature, we caught a baby frog
We also bring along our field guide book and look up the insects, plants, etc. we see during our observing!
Letting a child explore God’s beautiful creations is such a blessing!
