    Keystone Dam ~Nature School

    dam

    I love that nature teaches with very little help from me.

    On a trip to the Keystone Dam we were able to watch this line of Heron’s fishing.

    My younger ones seemed the most awestruck by this.

    Such a simple but beautiful lesson.

    I am thankful that when I am at a loss the outdoors will bring teachable moments.

    Burn

    grass

    It is always a bit bittersweet to see our back burning.

    I know that getting rid of all of these leaves and dead grass might mean more wildflowers soon but it is hard to see it all gone.

    I am hoping that burning the back will help with our grasshopper problem.

    burn3

    They have been everywhere in recent years and I think it might have to do with my asking Nick not to burn the back in the spring.

    I guess I will find out in a few months.

    This dog is odd.

    She would lay down right in the fire’s path!

    Crazy.

    She also decided to use Nick as a resting post.

    I cannot wait for spring flowers to replace the ash!

    “Nothing Gold Can Stay”

    Thursday, March 5th, 2015

    I have a lot of other things I should be blogging about.

    I am way behind in our curriculum posts.

    sunrise

    But I looked out my window this morning and saw the beautiful sun rising over the new snow.

    All I could think was that line in Robert Frost’s Poem “Nothing gold can stay.”

    crystals

    So I went for a walk around our yard, trying to capture the magic that was happening before me.

    This above image is the one I pictured in my head before I went out.

    I knew I wanted to use my 50mm 1:1.4, just for this image.

    I am glad I was able to find it!

    The birds were serenading me the whole time.

    Beautiful.

    What an amazing way to wake up.

    I decided I wanted to add something to my non-existent bucket list.

    Watch the sun rise and set every day for a month.
