one of our favorite 'chores' is changing our nature table.
cleaning & packing away our favorite spring finds, saving them for next year & getting the summer box down from the shelf...we love rediscovering what treasures we have collected over the years.
orin asked to set the table up himself this year, and so he did! it was interesting to see how he arranged things, as i think i tend to set them up nearly the same way each year...tradition, i guess.
ehren helped me take down & pack away our spring treasures & aydin busied himself building our lovely bee model. it was handed down/over to us from a neighbor/fellow homeschooler whose children are now teenagers.
it is such a simple part of our yearly rhythm, but it holds such anticipation & always turns into a great morning of sharing & recalling the memories from when a certain object or another was found...
i am actually joining the bits of goodness , "summer nature table swap", so we'll have a few new handmade treasures to add this season as well.
we spent the rest of our day working in the garden & otherwise enjoying the gorgeous world mother nature has created for us!
happy solstice to you all!
