The Sunday Salon: Kindergarten Graduation and a Nature Walk Across the Prairie and Even a Little Bit of Reading

 




We are home, though we will head out again next week for the high school graduation party of our granddaughter, Bailey. It's a busy time of year.

Last week I posted here at Readerbuzz:





Author/illustrator Austin Kleon suggests not only keeping a list of the books you read, but mapping them here











Our naturalist group took a walk through Nash Prairie Preserve, a never-plowed, never-grazed pristine tall-grass prairie in our county, with a marvelous guide one evening last week. We were encouraged to pick wildflowers and walk in the grass and look closely at the flora and fauna (I was delighted to find a walking stick, three butterflies, a Gulf Fritillary caterpillar on a Purple Passionflower, and a Dickcissel.) 






Good Thing #1
Annie's kindergarten graduation.
Annie and her little brother, Wyatt.





Good Thing #2
We can check out odd things from our library,
including this huge unicorn sprinkler,
so we took this along to Big Sandy and
had a fun day with it and the kids.



Good Thing #3
The kids and I had a fantastic time
drawing in my journal and the journal we gave Annie for graduation.
Annie is really good at drawing horses.




I'm happy you joined us here at the Sunday Salon. Sunday Salon is a place to link up and to share what we have been doing during the week. It's a great way to visit other blogs and join in the conversations going on there. 


Some of the things we often talk about at the Sunday Salon:

  • What was your week like?
  • Read any good books? Tell us about them.
  • What other bookish things did you do? 
  • What else is going on in your life?
