This was probably the hardest month of nature study for our family……the topic, a busy life, and HOT weather really did keep us from tackling the fish theme with our usual vigor. But, that is what is wonderful about nature study – we can always pick it up again when the opportunity arises. Thank you so much for all of your entries this month to the blog carnival. I think each entry is a special glimpse into how your family kept nature study at the forefront and I know they will inspire us all to get outside with our children.
Our families fish entries from this month’s study (in case you missed one):
Be inspired. Be encouraged. Get outdoors!
