If you think you can't do nature study in the city...Check this out
















If you were like me and thought you really couldn't do nature studies or a nature journal in the city, you would be wrong. I thought, hmm, there is nothing in our backyard that would be good enough for a nature study, I will have to go somehere eles, which I did not want to do. Well, I found out I was wrong, really wrong. If you think you can't do this in you own backyard, here are some photos of just some of the things we found in our front and backyard this year!

Yes, I know! I was so excited to see that we could actually do nature studies in or own backyard, in the middle of town!

When we used to live in the city we would go to the city library where they had a pond with a fountain in the middle and LOTS of ducks. The opportunity for nature study there was unreal. There are also parks, river banks, vacant lots, you name it. You cannot escape God's creation!

I hate chiggers and ticks.

I advise no one to place his child where the Scriptures do not reign paramount. Every institution in which men are not increasingly occupied with the Word of God must become corrupt."
