Even though it has been "spring" here pretty much the whole week, now it's official!
The title kept changing for this post, as I have been wanting to catch up here for a while.
I am sick of changing it, so...
This is how we have been enjoying it!
Weekly all day nature class type thing. Basically they are in the woods for 6 hours playing games, tracking, identifying surviving, climbing trees
working as a unit.
E and I have our special alone time, or we play and play and play.
We have gone swimming
We have prepared the soil
planted some seeds and covered them up, nice and cozy and warm.
We have lego'd
We have seen friends
in amazing shakespeare play.
We have been cute as buttons.
We have played
out in the sun
We have wet felted
And we found owl pellets under a tree in our woods.
Looks like a gray squirrel, likely eaten by a great horned owl.
Many games of checkers, wii, computers, yard cleanup, ice cream runs, visit with grandparents, sleepovers, hanging out and doing "stuff" in the sun, finding new friends, rediscovering the creek, read alouds, snuggled up family TV events. And we decided to give this a go again.
This time with guarded expectations.
