What is my blog about? It's about Torah family living. It's about letting Torah affect our daily lives, from mealtime to bedtime, homeschooling to farm chores.

The Outdoor Hour - Challenge #2

This week's challenge was to focus on what we could hear, see, and feel.  Thanks to Daddy coming along and acting as photographer, we have a few extra photos this week.  :-)

Overall, it was very quiet during our nature hike, but we definitely could hear lots of snapping branches.  There is lots of deadwood where we took our walk.

We saw something very interesting, goldenrod in three different stages, all within a few feet of each other.

We also felt some things, one of which was very cold wind on our faces lol!
We also felt some spongy, fuzzy moss.

We hope you enjoy each of your hikes into creation.  There's always something new to learn, because our Creator has infinite creative juices flowing!

To enjoy The Outdoor Hour in your family, go here.

Quiet hikes are nice this time of year...so many things to notice and I was surprised that you found some goldenrod still blooming. I agree that there is always something to learn if we take the opportunities that come along.
