For our homeschool outing today we went to the Harvey Moore Bird Sanctuary. It was a picture perfect day and we had the added treat of talking to Harvey's son about the sanctuary. Then we were off. The older kids went running while Levi and I just sauntered along. At first I was anxious to keep up with the group but quickly realized that doing that would pretty much kill the fun factor of the outing. So, I slowed down and enjoyed things Levi style. We looked at moss, bark and things floating in streams. We took some time to call to a curious nuthatch that came down to meet us. We met up with the rest of our intrepid group at the floating gazebo for lunch.
After lunch we enjoyed a playdate with some of the homeschooling families from our group which was lovely. The kids are always happy to have friends over to play. I was impressed that this morning Nate and Emma-Lyn got their school work done before heading out on our excursion. Tomorrow we have school and piano lessons in the morning and then a little boat ride in the afternoon!
