Just wanted to say that I love your site. I am a homeschooling mom of 2 boys, and we are looking to incorporate nature study/journaling into our homeschooling as well.
We live in Georgia – do you happen to know of a book similar to this for Georgia? I’ve done a quick search but didn’t come up with anything.
oh my goodness! how does the Lord keep leading me back in this direction??? we homeschool our five in tampa bay and the last month all i can see and hear is a call to nature study!!

Karin, I can’t believe that I just now found this site. I added your badge to my site. We live in Georgia but the ecology is so similar that a lot of the resources are very helpful to us. Thanks!
