Remember the early morning walk? Tonight we did the same concept but waited till the sun was just about set.
Yes Sam is wearing her jammies with a coat and hat!
We stopped to look at things. We talked a lot about the things that we could hear but not see; barking dogs, crickets, geese, chirping birds, planes, etc. We looked at the colors in the sky. Sam looked and looked for the sun but couldn't find it and couldn't find the moon either. We did see one star which was very exciting for her.
Not as much natural activity on the evening walk as there was on our early morning walk but I think Sam still loved being able to be outside exploring a different time of day.
The Nitty Gritty!
I am anxious for it to start getting darker, not in general but for the purpose of being able to sit outside in the dark and show Sam the stars. I love looking at the stars and can't wait to share that with Sam.
Have you watched the stars with your child lately? Do you go for evening walks?
