Nature Challenge #1
This is our first official nature challenge, though not our first outing by far. Ha! The boys had no idea they were "schooling." Took along a little favorite friend too. The two things we'll be learning up on are herb the beautiful caterpillar (living in the comfort of his own bug box here) and some puffy little balls (coccon? plant?) on a desert plant found in the canyon. Of course, the boys were very busy studying climbing, red ants, spiderwebs wedged in tiny rock caves, lizards and how to make a dust storm in two minutes. An interesting observation... seems the closer to the ground a person is, the more they tend to look at it and see all the interesting stuff down there. Once a person gets bigger, they tend to look up- for something to climb. Good, clean fun. I wouldn't have it any other way...
