The Noticing Game, and How it All Began

When My Children Were Little, and I'd take them for walks or hikes or camping, I taught them a game called the Noticing Game. Since I was the type of kid myself who noticed a lot, especially outdoors, and found it quite fulfilling, I wanted them to share in it too. 

The Game Had Only two Rules:

1. Look for Something Interesting
2. Share it. 

My kids are teenagers now, and, well, It's harder to get their attention that way. 
I, on the other hand still like to play It. 
The Intention of this Blog is to Show You Things I've Noticed while Walking or Hiking. Sadly We don't do much camping any more, but The Noticing Game can be played just about any place, together or alone,  and if you leave it for a while, you can always return, For the Noticing Game is Especially fond of Prodigal Sons
and Daughters.
