Indy, Ko-Ko, runner and I took a nature walk today looking for signs of spring in our neighborhood. (SW had drama)
Now the children are doing a write up of what they found. We took pictures, rather then samples except for one poor flower picked by Indy. An innocent act of a loving 3 year old. We smiled and Ko-Ko and I set up to take an "artistic photo".
I will share their write ups tomorrow I think.
The most exciting part of our walk was finding a greenspace we didn't know about in our neighborhood. The green space had a willow tree on a small bank. The kids used the willow like a swing.
Knowing that willows grow near water as the traditional stories teach us, we went looking for water. What we found next was some karst topography (our city is famous for this). We found a disappearing stream, limestone cliffs and a sink hole. We kept walking and found a small playground. Indy tried out a "big swing" and loved it. This was a big deal since he has always disliked swings It was a day of discovery and we had a great time!
