Great Outdoor Challenge Day 3 (A day late)

I am a day late posting the day three photo...We normally attend a combination American Sign Language/Science class on Wednesday evenings. This week we met at a local trail to explore local flora and fauna with our teacher Mrs. Jawanna. Most of our time was spent discussing plants. The kids tasted mustard garlic and dead nettle, learned about poison ivy and poison hemlock, and viewed several rare and beautiful wild flowers.

Our hike began at 6:45pm and we arrived home a little before 9:00pm. So, after baths and cuddling a toddler who was three shades past rational behavior because he was so tired, this didn't get posted last night. Better late than not outdoors, right?

It's raining today, so I guess tonight's post will be wet. The kids will love it!
Get outside and have fun!!

How fun!

In the midst of the craziness of life, remember to carve out some "you time," a little "mother culture," and make something lovely each day to nurture your own soul, and then you will have more to offer to others and prevent burn out as well. And don't forget that The Artistic Mother's Art Group can help with that. I find that the group is helping me to balance life, motherhood and being artistic.

I'm so glad you are a part of our group, and I look forward to seeing your versions of the projects we are all doing together in The Artistic Mother by Shona Cole. Please let me know if there is ever anything that I can do for you or if you ever have any questions.

May God bless your day.
