Today I am thankful for...
~beaver sightings. We visit this place every couple of weeks and this past weekend we discovered recent signs of beaver activity, something I had never seen before. I was very excited! It will be interesting to watch what happens to the stream and it is good to know that the area is "wild" enough to support a beaver population.
~learning new things every day. Bur oak acorns are the largest acorns in North America. I had never seen them before and after reading a very appropriately placed informational sign, we saw the empty caps all over the forest floor around us.
~a happy little babe, easily content with a morning in the woods that most people would have called dreary and damp. Yet we discovered several cool nature discoveries and were glad to be out exploring.
What are you thankful for today?
