A Day for a Climb

We didn't plan it, we just set out to see what we could see and do what we could do. The children chose a few favorite spots before we set out, including "the play place" and "the sawdust place."  While we were playing, we noticed that there was one particularly adept climber in our group, up a tree,  and all of the children insisted in a try!  WE (their adult friends!) insisted in being spotters. Everyone who wanted to had a climb, and of course we took pictures:o).  At the "sawdust place" there was more climbing, closer to the ground, and exploring.  We found a bone (!) which, although the children speculated that it might be a dinosaur bone, when we showed the science teacher she helped us to notice the hollowness of the bone and the little scratch marks from mice gnawing, was identified as a turkey bone. We were very happy about the snow that fell while we walked, and there was lots of tasting!
Until Next Time,
the climber

focused on being up!
