Take a Child Outside Week

September 24-30 is Take a Child Outside Week. You can click here to read more about it, but basically, the purpose is to get kids outside and enjoying nature.

We started easy today: noticing nature in our own backyard.

This morning we noticed that some yellow was finally appearing in our tree. Can you spot it? Jack pointed it out to Jay this evening and then ran off, yelling, "Autumn! Autumn! Autumn!" Jay accused me of raising a "Nature Nerd." At least I never went to science camp...

When we went out to play this evening, we found this giant grasshopper leg. This is the second one we've found this week, so we're thinking Boris may be snacking on some insects.

Tomorrow we will be going to a park we don't frequent too much, so maybe we'll make some new discoveries there. If you're doing anything special, please feel free to chime in!
