the first days of autumn

We celebrated the first day of autumn by heading to a big, old oak tree in the neighborhood and collecting acorns. We road our bikes over and filled our baskets to the brim with nuts. When we got home, Uzi made an elaborate squirrel feeder with a ladder and sticks and a bucket filled with water and acorns. We have spent the last week watching squirrels scurry onto our patio and collect the nuts he left for them. It has been pretty fun to watch their antics. We saved some acorns for our nature table and some caps for an art project or two. I have a feeling we will head back to the oak tree and collect many more acorns before the season is over.
