Friday really was the most stunning day, incredibly beautiful, fresh and crisp. Not too cold but cold enough to enjoy a nature hike bundled up in our warmest winter wear. We went out to a local trail with some homeschooling friends who are in the know and all had the chance to hand-feed chickadees and nuthatches. The children thought it was so wonderful and walked themselves exhausted.
It wasn’t until we reached the end of our walk that we noticed the time – we’d been out for two and a half hours! Two four year olds, one seven year old and a ten month old in a back-pack happily entertained by nature for most of the afternoon.
It was a day of contrasts; white snow and black seeds, white and black feathers, shouts of excitement and hushed voices. And the best end to any adventure, relaxed spirits and sleeping children. A perfect day.
