Friends collecting firewood.
Cooking soup over a play fire and prying out a rock with a digging stick!
An inspiration of Elisabeth’s during free play which several Nuthatches got involved in.
On our way to gather goldenrod in the meadow across the creek…
We had no idea how much, if any, we would find… so we were grateful there was enough that we could harvest what we needed and still leave plenty.
Here’s what we did with that goldenrod!
…and a couple of songs:
I Thank the Earth
I thank the earth for feeding my body
I thank the sun for warming my bones
I thank the trees for the air that I breathe
And I thank the water for nourishing my soul.
I hear the voices of my ancestors calling
They say wake up, wake up
Listen, listen now:
May the rivers all run free
May the mountains go unbroken
May the air be pure, may the trees stand tall
May the earth be shared by all.
Wishing you all light and joy as the days shorten,
Mira & Elisabeth
