O send out thy light and thy truth: let them lead me; let them bring me unto thy holy hill, and to thy tabernacles. Psalms 43:3

And as all have not faith, seek ye diligently and teach one another words of wisdom; yea, seek ye out of the best books words of wisdom; seek learning, even by study and also by faith. D&C 88:118

Nature Lessons on the Beach

Last week the weather was amazing after co-op. As usual when it isn’t raining, we headed to the beach park for lunch and play. This time, the tide was further out than we have ever seen it and the kids were in for a treat- crabs!

All the kids had fun finding crabs and watching them. Thanks to a class I took in college, I was able to teach them how to tell if the crab was a boy or girl crab…

Strawberry enjoyed looking at the crabs, but she was more interested in finding shells.

I love that we have gone to the same park and beach every week throughout the year. We have watched the seasons change, watched the tides come in and go out, watched the beach rearrange itself- adding new drift wood and taking some away, and seen some beautiful creatures. What a blessing to be able to explore every week.

  1. What fun! We love family trips to the beach and still have one hermit crab living in a fishtank from a beach trip almost two years ago.
