Hello! I have returned. Did you all miss me while I was gone on my unplanned sabbatical? Hopefully you didn't forget about me! Even if you did, I am back again to remind you of all the fun there is to be had projecting! I won't bore you by going back and revisiting all the things we did at Christmas time or for Valentine's Day or St. Patrick's Day but I do have photos to share from a few things we've done since my last post, just so you don't think I gave up "doing stuff" altogether in my blogging absence.
One thing we started way back in January was a weekly visit to our backyard pond/marsh. This is a year-long nature observation project to supplement our science textbook. I'll probably post an update now and again as the year progresses. My idea was to try and take a photo from roughly the same spot each week and at the end of the year turn all the pictures into a flip book. We shall see.....If you scroll down really fast you might get an idea of how it will look.
Week 2 & 3 (I'm lumping them together since there was no real change from week to week during the winter months.)
Followed by some fun pictures so that you don't get depressed from reminders of how long and cold and unpleasant our winter was.
Week 6 & 7
Week 8 - A CHANGE!
This doesn't quite bring you up to date, but I will save the story of my falling into that mucky water for a future post - that way you have to keep checking back in.
Happy spring, everyone!
