Wind and Leaves

 Before setting off today we read a book called Chipmunk Song that put us in the chipmunk world. We practiced looking like we  filled  our cheeks with acorns, making the sound "chip chip chip" as we walked, listening for bird song that would tell us that our world was safe, and  learned that chipmunks seal themselves in their underground holes in the winter, eating the nuts that they stored all fall. As we walked, we saw many holes and speculated about chipmunks. I love to take pictures when we're outside, and do try not to be too intrusive. Today, though, there were a few requests for pictures, then "can I see it?" when the picture was taken. A beautiful bit of sunshine in a long week of rain!

a familiar picture, all of us looking down a hole. We think its a chipmunk hole!
off we go, "chipping" like chipmunks
