We did some very informal nature study at our usual spot this past Tuesday. We really just needed a few hours out of the house and some fresh country air. It was hard leaving the house because of everything else
We took a short walk half way around the lake. The other side was not mowed and I was too afraid of ticks and chiggers to venture off the path that day. We mostly noticed an abundance of insects. They were flying, jumping, and buzzing all around us on our walk. The boys also took a swim in the lake. The lake was a nice temperature but a little muddy.
