that was a great adventure!

a chipmunk hole, and best of all we watched a chipmunk

jump right in!

over the bridge

this was part of the running
it's true, it was!! We headed out with our little group for muddy boots club, and brought along clothesline, clothespins, and sheets to make "tents". There was a lot of tweaking of the tents by the tall people before the littler people agreed that they would do. AND THEN there was a lot of running, "scaring" noises like BOO and BUGGA BUGGA and pretty loud yelling. AND THEN things got quiet as the tent became decorated and clothes pinned and decorated some more, with a stick bed added (admittedly not very comfortable) and food for a cheetah. Clothespins were counted and pinned and counted, there was a tractor made out of bark, and a fairy house put together with sticks and pine cone decorations.
and then the decorating

and decorating


does that scare you?

this child asked me to come look each time she pinned the tent

making a "tractor"

such focus

a solitary game

ta da!

you can see the "bed" on the ground. It was decorated with a line of leaves for comfort

snack time outside! These children collapsed with exclamations of "I'm bored!"
