Leaf Collecting

Last night we went leaf collecting. About 1/2 a mile away is a beautiful patch of trees. Nothing extraordinary about them until this time of year when they turn all sorts of beautiful colors. We went to go take some to bring home with us.
For Joshua this was a time to talk about seasons. With a little help he identified all four and we talked about the weather during the seasons as well.
For Jeremiah this was a lesson in color identification. He found yellow, green, orange and red leaves. Some of the colors were hard to identify because they were a blend of several.

Overall we just had a really good time. We were maybe gone for 45 minutes from the house with the walk and the time spent there, but it was all our favorite time of the day. We all were still laughing when we were walking home.
