Alphabet Photo Scavenger Hunt “In Nature”

My family loves to hike and take nature walks on the weekends! We go so often that we know all the local trails forward and backwards, and honestly, it can get a bit mundane to just keep walking the same “ol’” trail each time, especially for kids. So we like to liven it up a bit with games! And as homeschoolers, games always turn into learning opportunities!

This time, we decided to have an Alphabet Scavenger Hunt “In Nature” using our Cameras !

Not only does this liven up the nature hikes, it is a fun and adventurous way for little ones to get exercise, learn to appreciate God’s creation, practice their phonics, photography and computer skills!

June 7th of this year was “Free Fishing Day” in Texas. This means we could fish any Texas waters for one day only without a fishing license! Of course, we had to load up the rods, paddle boat, picnic basket, & the family and headed out to the lake with my sister and brother in law!!

A Day on the Farm

Sunday we slept in, well I say we slept in, I had been up really early with my daughter and her new puppy, a little Bassett Hound pup. He is a cute little thing, but like any newborn, he needs to eat, play, and be taken “out” often and not always when it’s convenient (like at 5 AM on a Sunday when I would rather be sleeping.) But I am proud of my daughter, she is taking it in stride and showing great responsibility with him!

But after we had finished tending to him, I went back to bed and slept late. It was nice not to have any place to be today!
