Happy New Year to the Forest

We had an all-time low temperature in the woods today: 21 degrees. But with no wind and lots of moving bodies, we stayed warm and happy. We are glad to be back after vacation!

We had to work hard to clear the snow from our fire circle. Braxton helped shovel for half an hour!

We also needed to replenish our wood supply. Here is Hayden sawing, Astrid holding the stick steady, and Gemma’s dad Mr. Luthy helping.

After all that work we were happy to play in some new areas. We loved these new climbing trees across the field. (Silas, Logan, Jackson and Lyndon in the front, Jackson way up top!)

Rowen’s Forest Journal. You can see how he wrote labels and is starting to write a whole sentence below. (The fire was smoky today because of all the icy wood!)

Gemma documented one of the most important events of today: a lost tooth! Luckily her dad was right there and saw it fall so it wasn’t lost in the snow.

Logan: “Me and Hayden playing zombie.” His picture shows how zombies’ arms stick out, and he labeled “arms.”

The story of our day. It was a good one!
