Muddy Monday

We did a full afternoon in the woods today, and boy were we exhausted! We learned how to put on Grundens, then trekked out to the woods (gathering apples on the way), ravenously ate lunch, and then played, played, played. We learned about tree climbing safely, the outhouse, and explored farther afield, making many new discoveries. We read Over in the Meadow and practiced counting to ten and then found groups of nature objects in ones, twos, and threes– like sticks, pine cones, leaves, and berries.

It is harder to take pictures when it is just me outside, so bear with the sparer blog postings until I get some volunteers out with me!

Gregory discovered a great way to get down the big hill!


And of course we discovered the mud. The area was lush with ferns and had just enough water in the stream to jump over. Good thing for those Grundens! Here is Isla and Ainsley.


We also found the big log and everybody took a turn crawling or walking across it. Here is Isaiah, Gregory, and Henry.
