This weekend I planned to write a post about our recent gardening adventures but since I was enlisted to help with sheeting and shingling the porch roof I didn’t have enough time left to write. Suffice it to say I will never take on roofing as a career and this week’s post will simply be a few pictures of some of the children’s activities last week.
Early in the week the bugs from the nature area were the toy of choice — I don’t know exactly what they were doing, sometimes I think it is better that I don’t ask.
The children also initiated a storytime session in the nature area;
Outside they helped my son create a unique sculpture;
They called the finished product a “Northern Branch Turtle”
It rained overnight which meant there were some more activity options;
And there was water for our soup but when too much ‘stuff’ was added we had to try to get it out without losing any of the precious broth;
In the past they have just dumped it all out but we are learning to conserve water since it isn’t always available.
We played in the tunnels;
And found a dead dragonfly in the garden;
We love dragonflies and hope this one didn’t die as a result of the city spraying to kill cankerworms.
We ended the week with more water fun when we got to clean the old plant pots;
It was a very productive week.
