This week we read books about hibernation and talked about how different forest animals spend the winter months as we hid in our natural shelters and played one of our favorite games "Don't Wake the Bear." We even found a mystery hole with nuts at the entrance that may have lead to a chipmunks burrow.
On Tuesday there was water in the pond so we were able to go canoeing! On Wednesday we walked the alpacas to the garden to graze, and we picked, shelled and popped our beautiful gem corn from the garden. On Thursday we practiced archery, used a bow saw to cut firewood, hiked to a sunny spot in the woods to enjoy the bright sunshine and play, made bird feeders, and climbed our favorite climbing tree.
