Gene Stratton-Porter Field Trip

A few weeks ago, our home school group took a field trip to the home of Gene Stratton-Porter. Gene was a famous author, photographer, and nature lover. I think this might have been the most information field trip we've been on. We had three different tours, one of the grounds, her home, and then watched a short documentary. We enjoyed our time spent there, even though we had a chilly but beautiful day.
 Isn't this a cool looking tree? I thought so. We learned how to identify three different kinds of trees, beech, tulip, & wild cherry. Our guide was funny and the kids (and adults) really liked him.
 Here are the kids enjoying the covered porch......and appeasing mom with a group photo.

I got some fall shots of the munchkins while we waited for the next tour to start!
