After Becca and Cody stumbling upon a rattlesnake in the front yard (we live on an acre and a half that is mainly wooded), I had been more than a little timid about taking her for a walk on our nature trail… and for good reason. So, I decided that if I wanted to do a nature collection to use with her light box, the best plan would be to do it when Daddy was home! So we did! We went for a fabulous nature collecting walk with our protector right there ready to ward off any sneaky snakes that might have crossed our path. Thankfully, we didn’t see any, and it helped both of us female chickens to overcome a little of our fear.
We took a baggy with us and collected several awesome items along the way, and then came back inside to look at them on the light box to see if we could see through them or not. Sadly, our really cool rock is not see-through. Good lesson to learn! The leaves, on the other hand, and blade of grass, looked AWESOME!
