Nature in our own backyard….

An acorn….

A simple acorn that Keagan loves to complain about hurting his feet….Little did he know there was so much more involved in a little acorn. He learned today. It was really neat to watch the wheels in that little head turn….

“Look, Look, Look”, he says!! He even enjoyed digging his own up! We have so many in our yard…Its a wonder our backyard isn’t a forest already.

It is so amazing to me, to Aaron, to Keagan-that such a little nut can turn into such a gorgeous tree. Into a tree where we make family memories. Where we swing on our tire swing…we play in the shade and we watch in amazement each year as this tree continues to amaze us.

On this 15th day of November I give thanks to Nature. It is such an important part of our families lives…

  8. Wonderful – now they really will understand that ‘great oaks from little acorns grow’.

  9. That is a nice post to go with your acorn pictures. I wonder if Aaron will still complain about them, though. Do you have a nature lover in the making?

  10. Terry has 3 Live Oaks (about 3 1/2 ft. now) that he started from acrons (from that “Live Oak Forest” at the Reserve Plantation in Litchfield) a few years ago. They are planted in the middle of our raised bed in the back yard. So Cool!

    We have a large pin oak beside our house and the squirrels love the acorns off of it. Great shots.

  14. Oh, he’s cute! Yes, it’s startling to realise they start so small, isn’t it? From little acorns mighty oak trees grow …
