One Sunday afternoon we headed down to our little lake and chose a tree for our 4 season tree study, I took a few pics, the boys and I sketched the tree and when we were done examining it I pulled my tree field guide out to identify it and realized we had picked a Red Maple. I love Red Maple’s but we just ended a 4 season tree study on a Red Maple =). I felt so silly for not knowing that right away. Oh, well maybe next time. We then got in our little boat and rowed across the lake to a sweet gum tree, we sketched it and got out of the boat to take a walk. In the end we decided to pick a different tree another day and that’s o.k. it was still a wonderful day out in God’s Amazing Creation with my boys!!
