On Wednesday one of the children suggested we go on a bird hunt. We set out with our bird guide, our binoculars and our excitement! I explained that we may need to use quiet voices so we would not scare the birds away (not an easy thing when you are so very excited).
We quickly discovered a mysterious hole and talked about what kind animal could be living there. Some suggestions were a coyote, a raccoon and a snake! We decided poking stick in the hole was not the best idea.
We continued along the way and saw "Margaret the garden lady" working in the garden. Margaret explained to the children that she was preparing the garden for the cold weather. She told us that the peppers would not like to cold temperatures, but that our broccoli would be just fine.
Not much farther along the path we found benches to take a rest and some awesome climbing trees!
In the end we found one pretty bird feather and heard a few birds in the distance, but we never actually saw a bird on our journey! Everyone was happy though and it was all about the journey along the way!
Liam suggested we search for snakes next time!
Some other fun these past weeks included:
