Our little “squirrels” have been busy collecting the falling pecans and opening them any way they can, with the most popular way being with rocks. They have had a great time with Ms. Leona’s rock washing station, stamping with apples and observing a spider high up in the butterfly garden building and maintaining a web. Their necks are dusty dirty, they have appetites to rival a grown man and best of all, they are happy children using their core bodies and discovering new things in nature every day.
A special thanks to our friend, Piper, for sharing beautiful fresh pears from her home with us! We have been enjoying them the past 3 weeks and they are so tasty!
Thank you, Elaine [Grandmother to Rhone] for stopping in and reading the story, The Little Red Hen, to Treehouse while visiting from Oregon! What a special treat.
