Outdoor Hour Challenge Blog Carnival – July 2014 Edition

OHC Blog Carnival

Here we are at the end of July and another great selection of Outdoor Hour Challenge blog entries for you to read and enjoy. Summer can be a great month for getting outdoors and learning more about your natural world, unless it is too HOT like it was here for most of the month. Our drought continues to color the landscape a golden brown. The highlight of my month was sharing a few hours each week with some little people who are nature lovers. We explored my backyard together and seeing the world through their eyes was amazing. You can read about our adventures in the entry below.

Our family’s July entries from this month’s study (in case you missed one):

Round Lake Hike – Nature Study Goals 2014
Summer Bird List 2014

Be inspired. Be encouraged. Get outdoors!
