This past week was our coldest week of forest school so far, but the days were full of discovery, learning, adventure, cooperation, and fun! We kept warm by staying active and hiking uphill, drinking warm tea, and singing our favorite songs around the fire.
We also discovered that wrestling with Sam is another good way to stay warm.
And we gathered around Chris to read a good book in the forest.
We experimented with chunks of ice, salt, and spray bottles of warm water.
River and Andy found some frozen deer poop on one of our hikes. We tracked the deer's path and the kids also noticed that deer poop looks a lot like Alpaca poop, only a little bit bigger.
And Sage called out to us with an exciting discovery: "A tiny mushroom!"
We found a steep bank that the kids loved climbing up and then tumbling down.
