Photos .... to give you the gist of things!
The boys were wild for making traps and building all sorts of cool devices to attract a crazy squirrel and they gave the trampoline and the hose a workout. We started Farley Mowat's wonderful book, An Owl in the Family, and I hope you might encourage them to read it at home or read it aloud to them. It's the fun story of how a famous naturalist and writer got his start. All his books are amazing.
We had a spelling bee and trivia quizzes. We made friendship bracelets. We made duct tape quarter holders.
We made a mess.
I didn't have my camera 'on me' most of the time, but I think you get the gist of things. This is an awesome group of kids. All so kind and such originals.
Thank you all for sharing them. They make Valley Camp fun.
We made snakes out of old ties. They are SO dang cute.
Yes, boys like to sew. They say they don't, but they do.
Every day ends at Junction Creek.
Counting trout under the boulders.
Tiger spice tea with milk and honey keeps us going.
After so much time in nature, it's fun to visit the city.
And make our own.
The onion continues to be passed.
Another wonderful week with such great kids!
Week 3 was a field trip week. We found a favorite spot and went back every day.
The whole week can be summed up with one photo.
This week was awesome. We talked about my favorite artist, Andy Goldworthy, and then we made our own Andy Goldworthy creations. His books are in the fine art section of the library and you should totally check them out for your kids to peruse....they are always fascinated and inspired by him and the only art supplies needed come from Mother Nature!
"We kiss snakes."
A little river clean-up never hurt anybody.
AGAIN! Thank you for sharing your your children.
