First Picnic of the Year!

A brief summary of today's events:
  • Long morning hike that included reading, water/mud play, and oral story-telling
  • Beautiful picnic outdoors (Leek and Potato Soup with couscous salad and pita)
  • An afternoon hike that involved solo time for a non-sleeping child that included measuring water depths, exploring skeleton leaves, long-jumping off of stair stumps, turning sticks into magical walking and talking sticks, and a conversation on Aboriginal cultures
  • Dreamy sleeps for our younger children, followed by soy yogurt, fruit and a little outdoor play to end the day

All is well, as we witness the beauty of Spring slowly revealing itself....
