We had an amazing time exploring the creek looking for crawdads. We gave everyone cups so we could catch a few and observe them up close. It was nice to get our feet in the water to cool off while we drew pictures on rocks with sandstone. We also discovered a natural mystery -- some small white eggs in what appeared to be a little nest in the creek. After looking into it we think they might be water snake eggs. The kids were inspired to decorate the ladder on our tree platf
It was great having everyone back for our first day of summer session! We spent our time following frogs and toads in the creek, trying out hula hoops, mirrors, and hammers, building with 1/2" PVC pipe, figuring out how to spin our friends on the rope swing, and painting wooden circles that Junie gave us.
