Baby’s First Nature Walk

“In every walk with nature one receives far more than he seeks.” -John Muir

As part of the National Environmental Education Week Challenge, I decided to take Joshua for a walk around the farm.  I believe that if you expose a child to the environment and teach him to love nature, he will grow up to protect it.

We walked with my mom through the apple orchard, under the covered bridge and by the pond.

At the pond we saw geese, a duck, three turtles and lots of frogs.

We saw daffodils in bloom, picked one and smelled it.

The peach trees were blossoming, and we were greeted by Dukie.

Don’t forget, there’s still time to join the National Environmental Education Week Challenge! Email your post or leave a comment by April 19th!

  1. Even though Joshua slept through much of his first nature walk, I just know he took in your enthusiasm for and love of nature on such a delightful day!

    Thanks for including me; I loved it!

  2. Hmmm . . . I just posted a thank you to a small artist who crafted a crayon apron for Annabelle. Does that count towards being environmentally conscious . . . supporting the local artists?

    Oh, and Joshua looks like he’s having a great time on his walk. Have you ever considered an Ergo? I’ve been wanting to buy Joshua a birthday present.

    Sew those seeds now. For in time you may think he has forgotten but in the end it will all revisit him.
