Our nature studies are intertwined with wonderful memories with family this past month. Maybe that’s what makes fall a favorite for me. Leaf trips, tromps through my grandmother’s woods, and just noticing changes right in our own backyard. The cooler weather, brilliant blue skies and gorgeous tree color make a beautiful combination.
When Grandma and Grandpa were here early last month, we took a trip over to the highest point in Alabama. These rolling hills have called us for over a decade now. It’s a perfect spot for fabulous fall color. And easy as a round trip day destination.
Close by, we can visit my grandmother, Mama Ann. We always have to walk through her woods. This spot, where littlest girl stands, holds special memories for me. Many a time I played in that creek. And now to see her there.
It’s a new month and a new newsletter is available at Handbook of Nature Study – for free! We especially love the nature study grid the newsletter includes. Easy and fun prompts for getting outside and enjoying December. This month’s topic? Weather.
How have you been making memories this fall?
