An Important Update

I am very pleased to announce that the Exploring Nature With Children: A guided journal is almost ready for release!
Whilst working on the guided journal, I have taken the opportunity to update some of the poetry selections within the original ENWC curriculum.
The new guided journal will contain pre-printed copy-work passages for your child, which will reflect the new poetry selections.
I am offering the updated, second edition of Exploring Nature With Children free to all customers who purchased the first edition. I have just sent out a download link to all my customers. Please remember that it goes directly to your PayPal-linked email address and comes from Payhip, the company that host my book online. Be sure to double check your spam filter!
I will update you once Exploring Nature With Children: a guided journal is available to purchase.
Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
Thank you, as always for your continued support.
Happy exploring!

Our Nature Journals Week 14

As always, a mixed bag weather-wise. Rose was padding in the pond at the beginning of the week, (I know, it’s only just turned April, but she’s a pretty hardy child!) and by the end, we were all wrapped up again in our woollens!

Here are my wee nature group: We didn’t do any journaling this week, I just let them play and explore. The weather was so fine, we stayed out much longer than usual. We then retuned home for lunch and journaling, but the girls became interested in a snail they found in the garden, and I decided to leave them to more exploration.


The rest of the week has not been conducive to study. Rose has been poorly with a virus, and sadly her beloved guinea pig, Nibbler passed away. Here they are together in happier times.


Here is my journal for the week. The Dog Violets are beginning to bloom along my garden path, which is always such a joy! I also cheated a little, and sketched the wee blackbird we spotted last week.

How Much Does He Care?

“The question is not, “how much does the youth know?” when he has finished his education, but “how much does he care?” and about how many orders of things does he care? In fact, how large is the room in which he finds his feet set? and, therefore, how full is the life he has before him?”
