Fall is Here!
We experienced a dramatic change in weather last week and we went on two big adventures. On Tuesday it was very warm as we followed the big creek about halfway to Lake Monroe. We found cool rock formations, fungi, frogs, and crawdads. On Thursday it was much colder, so we warmed up our bodies by hiking up "Fairy Mountain" where we discovered a painted turtle! These new environments supported some rich dramatic play as well. Back at Fairywood we explored shadows on the tipi walls, jumped in leaf piles, slid down the mud mound, and fed the always hungry hens.
