I have a new blog-baby! I am really excited about Nature study, so I thought I would start a nature journal-blog. My husband has been thinking of blogging, but cannot settle on an idea. This will give him a nudge into the blogosphere! We are now a blogger team! How romantic!

My friend Merry tells me this pretty orange wildflower is called Jewell Weed.

I don't know, Nature Gals. Is this edifying?
I am trying to catch up with the Nature Challenges, but this is all that is left of our sunflowers. They have become an hourly motel for assasin (?) bugs! I guess we can look them up and try to figure out which is male and which is female!

Well, it is 2 am, and I am up with a miserable cold. It may actually be the cold medicine that is keeping me up! So I thought I might try a weekly report.
We have not done much.
Nutmeg was feeling bad on Sunday, and today was her best day. The Chipmunk was home today with a fever, and will be home tomorrow - which I guess is already here. I think Nutmeg did Language Arts, and it seems like we got in some math. Friday (later today) we will try to do a "regular" school day, unless I crash!
I did get some ideas and preparation done this week. I am still reading Pocketful of Pinecones, and absorbing lots of inspiration. I have also printed out the challenges from The Handbook of Nature Blog (see my favorite blog links). I am trying to get my husband interested in the nature walks/journals. After school and activities (piano, swimming, dance), I am wiped out. I also think Nutmeg will be more open to the nature walks if it is daddy and not her "teacher." I don't want that to be her only perception of me, but I will have to gradually ease my way into the nature studies.
I hope you all had a good week!
