A few days ago, we decided to check out the nature center at the local state park. It was somewhat recently built but we had not seen it yet because I was not really aware of it. The inside has an indoor stream where you can see various fish swimming around. There are also a few turtles for show (like the one Allison is looking at). You can see a bunch of different animal pelts in one room and my favorite were the white rabbit and the beaver because they were some of the softest ones. There is also a room at the nature center where kids can look at an interactive map of the park and read books and play with stuffed animals. My favorite part, however, was the outdoor viewing of the bison from a balcony at the nature center. They were too far for Allison to be interested but I’m sure that we can revisit when she gets older. It will be more fun the older she gets because she will be able to ask questions and actually become interested in learning things. Columbus has a ton of places I still want to explore and, once older, Allison will become a great companion.
Galatians 6:4 (MSG) Make a careful exploration of who you are and the work you have been given, and then sink yourself into that. Don’t be impressed with yourself. Don’t compare yourself with others.
