last bits of summer saved

:: late summer nature table. our nature table has had a lot of activity with our recent trips down the shore. found treasures occupy the table as we hold on to the last bits of summer

:: my little one quickly pulled this little acorn off the table as I was about to take the nature table pictures. she said if was for fall table, which will soon be here. we talked about the progression of the seasons today. we noticed the green leaves on the trees and just a tiny bit of autumn color coming in, picking apples, picking up pumpkins at the pumpkin patch, celebrating Halloween and Thanksgiving, winter with snow and sledding and making gingerbread cookies and hot chocolate. as she grows older, the rhythms of the year are emphasized by our activities and celebrations.
