Elijah needed to make a fall flower museum for science so we took a walk and found some.
He found so many for his project.
Remy wasn't looking for flowers but he was on the lookout for little creatures.
He chased this guy for a while. Seems he was too quick for the Remmit.
Finally Eli hit the jackpot! This is the flower he was really wanting to find. He wanted to see how many insects he could find on it. In his book it showed a city. He was not disappointed. He took this home and looked at small aphids and beetles under the microscope. There were even little spiders. I am so glad we remembered to do this. The project came up when Golden Rod was not in bloom. I made a note of it to get to later.
Noey loves to go for a stroll with us.
Remy caught something!
It was so sweet to watch Eli gather his flowers. He so enjoyed this outing with a purpose.
He had made a ring out of a dollar. He stopped me and told me how perfect the fold was because you could see these words:
Noey didn't make it the whole time. He slept all the way back to the house and then finished his nap in the stroller in the dark kitchen.
Remy informed me that the squirrels at our house would need this for their winter nests. We took the moss home, of course.
Eli decided to help Remy with his creature hunt for a while.
My sweetheart son. I pray he always takes the time to enjoy the simple things.
Remy was all about the bugs that day. I could hardly make it back home! :)
Such a fun walk with my three sons.
