Hands Up for Green!

Today was one of those days when you don’t ever want to go inside. Warm and dusty, a bit windy, green buds just beginning to pop, and especially glorious after so much rain last week.

What we actually did. We also heard and saw crows and chipping sparrows, but none of the other birds we had hoped for.

Finn: “There are leaves!!!” Sometimes you just gotta use binoculars to look at things close up too.

Worm that broke when we weren’t careful with our digging. We decided that we couldn’t fix it in the end, and sadly it will probably die.

Kenzie’s fort!

And real binoculars are REALLY fun to use on close up things. We also practiced on far off things.

Eliana’s arsenal of guns during Cops and Robbers. (Also don’t you love her clothes pairing? T shirt with balaclava. That is spring weather for ya.)

Alec: “Listen to the sound this mud makes.”

The wasp nest that Celia’s grandmother gave us last week. It was so cool to peel apart and look at the layers! If Zoey had the super power to make paper with her mouth like a wasp she would be called “Wasp Kid.”

Sometimes we have to play on the same log all together. I honestly have no idea what the game was this time!

Elijah: “Hey! The grass is green!” Hands up if you love green grass!
