Giving Thanks

This was our last session of fall quarter and we had yet another glorious time in the woods. The weather head out and we enjoyed all nature had to offer. We were grateful for the company we kept and the delights we discovered.

 Tuesday Froglets balanced and played and explored. We found huge amounts of Witches' Butter (a common jelly fungus, the bright yellow growth on the logs) and in the end made our very own candle holders. 

Tuesday Frogs romped as usual. Boundless energy poured in to all aspects of the afternoon. "A" brought a notebook for everyone to draw in and sign. "H" took the task very seriously.  Finally the candle holders were met with enthusiasm unmatched by any other craft this session! We even practiced how to "blow out" our flameless candles. 

Wednesday Froglets followed a new trail previously undiscovered by anyone anywhere! We chased the sunlight to stay warm and practiced with our flameless candles. Waving a hand to make them come alive!

Thursday Tadpoles were amazing! We saw some bravery from each little frog today. Hugged some trees, relaxed in a fort, and balanced on a log...on a hill!

I'm so proud of all of you!
Thank you for joining us in the woods this fall. 
I hope to see all of you in the future!
