Mother's Day walk in the park

It was a wonderful Mother's Day.  I was given the opportunity to get some needed organizing done.  We have yet to start our third semester of our school year, for many various reasons.  The number one being all the illnesses and bugs!  But being unorganized was up there at the top of the list.  I can assure you that trying to get schooling done when we can't find our books makes it a bit difficult :-)

We had time later in the day to go to a local park and take a family walk.  Half way through it started to rain, but we still had fun.

Saoirse made this wonderful 'crown' for me.  I wore it for the better part of the afternoon.

Trail marker at the park.

Jedidiah is our bug man!  He came prepared with his net, bug box and bug book (written and illustrated by Moira).  I am very thankful that I laminated the pages today.  At first Jedidiah freaked out.  I think he thought the pages were going to remain in the wrong order.  But once I cut the pages out, and assembled it, he was very pleased.  Had I not laminated it the book would have been ruined in the rain.

Consulting his book.  The whole walk was dedicated to finding bugs.  He found a couple of beetles, a couple of bees, a lizard and a spider.

Aubrey was very pleased to be able to walk the entire way.  He did a great job!  He was very amused at the spotted ground when it first started to rain.

I was blessed with many flowers along the way :-)

Some from Saoirse.

Aubrey followed suite and picked some flowers, except he threw his on the ground.

I had a growing collection.

The girls had wanted to play "horse".  They took the opportunity to run through the fields as wild horses. 

I swooped up Aubrey to show him the plane flying over head.  I used it as an opportunity to have our picture taken as well.

Daddy and Jed were lagging behind...they were searching for bugs.

Trying to get everyone to look at the camera at the same time proved difficult.  It may have to do something with it raining out at the moment!!  We shall try again later.

Have a wonderful day!
