Hearty and Hardy

Over the past two weeks, our group has proven to be both! We covered a lot of ground and made it back to to two of our favorite spots in the forest: Circle Pines and the Oak Savanna. On our way, we discovered some really cool shards of ice on the pond and Teacher Elizabeth explained that a fire hydrant had burst and the excess water was diverted to our pond. It reminded us of Andy Goldsworthy’s nature art and sculptures, which we had seen photos of this week. There’s also a new story walk in the forest, The Snowy Day, by Ezra Jack Keats. To help us celebrate Black History Month, we are reading stories that include Black characters, communities, and culture.

We also celebrated a big birthday this week, D is 4 years old ; )!

Snack time at Circle Pines!


Evergreen, Katydid & Jack-in-the-Pulpit discuss meat-eating vs. plant-eating dinosaurs.


Happy Birthday, D!
