The Snowy Adventure

This was our first real snowy day in the woods! The second day with snow, as Dakota and Avery reminded us. The weather was cloudy at first, but then the sun came out. It was 34 degrees in the woods.

One of the most exciting things about today was the sheer number of tracks we found. Deer tracks were everywhere! We learned that they are shaped kind of like a heart and they have two toes.

Ainsley was trying to pull up sticks in her Sit Spot. She learned about how you can tell dead branches from live ones. Live ones are hard to break and they have a little bit of green inside!
