At Grandpa’s – The Woods

Walking in the woods with the kids is always fun, although when using an overgrown trail that first descends, then climbs a steep ravine, there can be some tricky bits. There was a difficult moment when we were about twenty feet from coming out of the ravine onto level ground, that I thought we would have a mutiny and they would head back. But it was fun, and for once I followed through on my impulse to collect some of the huge variety of leaves I see down there. They all wilted in the heat before we got home; sometime I need to go in there with a nature journal and a few hours to spare.

The kids really got into the collecting mode, but they liked focusing on flowers, which meant mostly dandelions. I received a lovely bouquet.
