Winter Brings a New View

Today in Nature..

how has our favorite creek changed with colder temperaturesthe girls sketch a squirrel we saw in the tree
later we observed and listened
as a grey squirrel ate a black walnut Kobe notices the water is full and fast flowing
and tries to convince his mama that a creek crossing is in order
Kyle makes a bark rubbing,
inspects the protective outer bark
shedding to reveal the inner bark
and wonders what these leaf markings mean
His skateboard carries our books
and his pant leg picks up
a Sycamore seed Winter brings a new view into focus, I wonder, would he notice bark if the trees were covered in leaves and there were little creatures crawling in his path?It was a chilly walk, but so worth it,
Thanks for hanging out with us!
