Nature Study Group Outing - Week 2

Today our local schools had their first day of the new year, but we happily spent the morning at a lake with our little nature study group.  Lots of mallards, geese, and gulls, and a few other fun sightings: a pair of snowy egrets preening and squawking in the shallow water, a great blue heron perched in the tree above us, wild raspberry brambles lining the creek.  The children spent lots of time exploring and a little time drawing in their journals, and then finished up on a nearby playground.
