Hi all. After a day of shoo-ing out fear and answering questions to my girls of why would God allow this, I knew we needed some normalcy or fun somehow. So we took to the woods behind our home. One side of our property is a cornfield and the other side we live along a creek that runs into the woods directly behind us. The usual arguement around here is…where is the front yard? The yard that faces the highway or the yard that faces the road? Or the yard that faces the field? Bottom line though, we are blessed.
So no school today for the girls and we made list of the things we may be able to see in the woods. We all got our rubbery boots on and grandma came over and we hit our woods. I thought of you that read my stuff that haven’t been able to get out and thought you may enjoy these finds we found along the way. (BTW…I’ve been to the woods and to the dollar store once all week)
Things on the list:
Deer and raccoon tracks
Black, gray and white rock
Something made by a human
Loose tree bark
Only thing we didn’t find was the spider web. This adventure took our minds off of everything and calmed us considerably. We had a nice dinner and a calm evening where daddy taught the girls how to make yarn dolls and I retaught myself to crochet.
