Have you been thinking of making memories this fall in your homeschool? 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.
Our nature studies are intertwined with wonderful memories with family this past month. Maybe that’s what makes fall a favorite for me.
Making Memories This Fall in Your Homeschool
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.
I love everything about this photo.
And right here in our own yard, the trees took their turns changing. Spreading our their colors over several weeks. All we had to do was step outside and notice.
A nature walk at the local park with our homeschool group. Playing prey and predator.
Then, at Thanksgiving we trekked to the north Georgia hills. Took in new vistas, walks…
Getting outside changes perspective, builds memories. Opens the door to new discoveries.
It’s a new month at Homeschool Nature Study! We especially love the nature study grid the membership includes. Easy and fun prompts for getting outside and enjoying each month.
