Hi Clark! Warm welcome to the forum. I'm glad you found us. I enjoyed reading your blog and your family's adventures in nature -- also have a soft spot for 8th grade English, as it happens. Your pictures are terrific, too. I'm glad you jumped in by blogging here and hope you continue to make yourself at home. You might particularly enjoy the discussions in our Family Nature Clubs and Natural Teachers Network groups. I hope to see you around again soon.
