We Went Out!

strange fungus and almost muddy boots!

the mountain was a little slippery, but everyone tried a climb!

up and over

the children took great care of themselves walking down

but we were there with helping hands

getting muddy....

standing in a small bit of water

walking up the mountain

wet bridge ahead!

one at a time, watching how to go

now run!

"I'm an old man!"

building with sticks and yarn

it's a little too muddy sometimes

moving along!

and it ended up being a wonderful time to be in the woods. It was a bit slippery in places, but that meant that we had to be cautious and take baby steps, and watch our feet. There was water to explore, raindrops to feel, and bridges to cross. We found mushrooms, holes in the ground, and some nice rocks and leaves. We found a "mountain" and climbed up and down it. What do we learn from taking risks, climbing slippery slopes, walking cautiously across a bridge, and being outside for a while?
That we are strong, we can be persistent, we can ask for help when we need it, and we can be successful and confident! PLUS we sleep better at night!
