We had an important mission. It was very important indeed. You, see, we've been stuck here at home for so long, that Mama Bear needed some air. And not just any kind of air, but fresh air--fresh air and purpose. So we decided to get the camera and find some leaves. The benefits would be two-fold. First of all, we would be leaving the house (hooray!). And second, we would be making something, doing something. But actually, the benefits wound up to be many-folded (is that a word?).
We had fun! We got to walk around a bunch and climb on things. We were able to have fun with Daddy...
We found some really cool leaves and some beautiful colors.
We went exploring. We saw new things.
We tried new things. We laughed a lot.
We got some cool pictures.
We found some stuff to take home and create art with. We investigated our leaves to see what kind of tree they were from. Mommy and Daddy got a refresher on chlorophyll and photosynthesis. Did you know that the leaves already have the red, orange, yellow, or brown colors in them, but the green dominates the color you actually see? It isn't until that process stops that the green is gone and the other colors are seen...
