Outing

Even when it is hard, because there are always hard days, i am thankful for the flexibility we have with homeschool. Having the opportunities to do school outside the house are so great, but getting to do them with other kids took it to a whole new level for us this week. Lori, if you are reading this, thanks so much, we had a great time!!! One of the coolest finds of the day for our little group of explorers was this snake...everyone thought it was cool....except for Avery. She was back on the trail in a flash as soon as she saw it. Funny girl.
We got chances to sit and sketch what we saw together. We saw cormorants and a great blue heron. Right by the water is our favorite spot to sit and enjoy the birds. I loved that the little ones were also sketching but not what they saw like the older two but, snowmen and smiley face monsters! Cute right?
We also had the chance to cross one of the footbridges on the island where we were having our nature walk and explore the first lock in the Erie Canal system. The walkway by the water shows every lock across NY state...the kids followed that gray brick road right to the end. Mitch was a little tired after all the walking so he laid down on the bench and had a little pretend snooze. Always trying to make his audience laugh!
