Winter Beauty

Yesterday we were taking a walk for a science art project we were doing.  We were looking for pretty things to make a collage out of.  I took my camera just in case…and look what I found!

These red breasted birds are not Robins, but Bluebirds.  I was told that they will stay around over the winter if they can find a warm home and food.

Walking in the Woods on a Snowy Day

The older children had Science Sleuths today.  It was cold, but a beautiful day out, so Adrian and I took a walk at the park.  We had not gone far when we noticed the first deer.

We watched it for awhile before realizing there was another deer with it.  After exploring the park, hearing and finding a blue Kingfisher by the lake, throwing sticks into the water and writing in the snow, we saw our deer again.  Only then did we discover there were at least five hidden in the bushes.  Unfortunately for us, there were to many brambles to get all their pictures.

What a wonderful gift from God!  Going for a walk in the “dead” wintery woods and seeing so many of his creations.
