Going on a hike in the Northwest woods together.
The kids here are putting leaves and sticks in the stream to see how they float.
It's been 10 weeks of outdoor nature activities and the kids have learned out to be adventurous in the woods and quiet and watchful near the animals. We've had splashing through mud puddles, digging in the dirt and "fishing" in ponds. We've walked through the streams, scooped water up and dumped it to make mud. We've climbed tree roots and stumps and looked at the mushrooms inside of them. We've used a mossy log as a slide and then watched it strip down to wood and be un-slidable. We've petted the cow and the goats and felt the wool on the sheep. We've touched the warm egg, just laid by the chickens. We've picked our own pumpkins from the pumpkin patch and watched the jack-o-latern mold into a squishy mess.
