Nature Challenge 3

Well it was nice outside this morning, so we grabbed the chance to do the 3rd Challenge. Note that when I say it was nice out - it was sunny - but it was also only about 3C outside. I decided to draw our sunflowers, which are leaning way over, and some have lost most of the petals. Delta drew a leaf - and I'm not sure what Echo drew - she drew the leaf too, I think, but added a lot of scribbles.

I was going to post the drawings, but from the scanner it was pretty light and hard to see - and when I tried to put it on the blog I saw that you would never be able to see it at all. Not sure why the drawings came so faint.

btw - I am glad we went out this morning - the temperature dropped in the afternoon, and it was snowing on and off. It is snowing now, and I suspect that it might stay. Usually we get a few snowfalls that come lightly, and then melt the next day or so - but there is a fair bit of snow out there, so our first snowfall this year may also be the first to stay.


  1. I am really glad you were able to get outdoors before the snow. Although I do like to go out just after a snowfall to see tracks.

    We are going to have rain tonight and I will *not* complain because I am not ready for snow yet.

  2. Thanks Barb - we still have a light dusting of snow on the ground, although it is mostly gone. My kids have had snowball fights, and made a little snowman the last couple of days. I am sitting here going "well, about 7 months more of snow..." lol....
