nature walk

I couldn't resist taking the kids out for a nature walk today. I actually planned on it yesterday but the time flew by too quickly. It wasn't hard to find a wooded area nearby to explore. It was only a skip and a hop away from our doorstep, in town, but it was beautifully breezy and refreshing. We have always enjoyed finding new spots to peruse.


Here, Abby poses on a tree stump that was enormous! I don't know if you see the size by this photo but it has to be at least 100 years old.




Here are the photos that Abby took herself on

the nature walk. I think she did a very nice job

if I do say so myself. Toby makes a pretty good

subject as well. He is happy to pose!

Tonya, you are a natural at writing and sharing with everyone all the good schooling you are doing with my grandkids. Abby and you both are so good at picture taking. I think she may pursue this and even become famous! She has a good subject with her brother TJ. He looked very patient.

Why MAGNANIMOUS?

Noah Webster's 1828 Dictionary of the American Language defines Magnanimity as such:
MAGNANIM'ITY, n. [L. magnanimitas; magnus, great, and animus, mind.] Greatness of mind; that elevation or dignity of soul, which encounters danger and trouble with tranquillity and firmness, which raises the possessor above revenge, and makes him delight in acts of benevolence, which makes him disdain injustice and meanness, and prompts him to sacrifice personal ease, interest and safety for the accomplishment of useful and noble objects.
