The Beauty and Simplicity of Acorns

Acorns in a Hand

The connection that Sophia and Olivia have with nature is very strong. Part of homeschooling involves learning about and appreciating the beauty that surrounds us.

The beauty of acorns - the contrast between the smooth nut and the bumpy cap...the lovely shades of brown - is something that the girls notice and love to share with others.

These acorns were brought inside and placed on the nature table so they can be enjoyed each day.

There's something magical about acorns, isn't there. Both my kids also have this fascination and love of them. I think it might be the pure power, hope and faith that this tiny nut exudes... The fact that it grows into the magestic oak is just amazing.
Thank you so much for sharing on Friday's Nature Table. Welcome!
Blessings and magic.
