Our first real Wild Day was last Friday. It was super rad. How could it not be when one is wearing pink super floods?
We spent the morning doing the usual: chores, devotional, math, reading, and some astronomy. Then, grabbed our nature backpacks and hit the road!
The excitement throughout the morning was palpable — even though we go adventuring quite a bit, this felt new and official.
I had some helpful guides this time; books that were surprisingly difficult to track down locally. Something about some inept bookstore associates burying local books in the world wide travel section:
Let’s talk about how much cooler it is to actually find out the names and properties of the stuff you’re looking at? My oldest could stop panicking every other second that we were accidentally going to pick something poisonous.
Cute little stinker. He takes the weight of the world on his shoulders.
This Wild Day took place at the Rexburg Nature Park. Next week, I’d like to get a little more ambitious and maybe see more wildlife than fatty ducks used to feasting on Wonder bread trucked in by families.
* All my pictures are straight out of the camera today – no time to edit, we’re off to iFamily classes. Later skaters! (Oh! Someone asked, so I’ll answer really quickly: iFamily was put together by a group that follows the TJED stuff pretty closely. We do not, you don’t have to be a TJED-er to particpate.)
