Tender Tracks Wed. Day 10
Nov. 15, 2017
Sorich Open Space Park
Cole was not with us today and Ellie Erickson’s Grandma Nanna came to be with us. Another wonderful Grandma to come play with the Tender Trackers.
The weather was cool and mostly gray without a drop of rain. We went to Sorich and never left our little area yet adventured deep into Fig trees, Big Rocks, Bouncy trees, running up and down hills, going on big climbing adventures, pooping in the Tender Tracks porcelain potty, circle time celebrating Ashleys Fourth birthday and making gifts for birds from Pine cones, peanut butter, and birdseed.
Such a full and delightful day!!!!
Uma was so happy accept, when it came to her nice rain suit. She runs hot so to have to keep that on was a feat. However, we took off as much of the clothes as possible yet still keeping this suit on that enabled her, and all the children, to roll and play on the ground and all around as much as they chose.
Ellie Acorn, she had so many smiles, laughs and playing with the other girls today!! She even shared in circle! Ellie Turtle was simply happy, happy, happy with Nana being there. She was just, content.
Eamon was delightful as he climbed up and down the rock and was DELIGHTED with gathering and eating fresh picked Figs!!! Holden happy, happy, running and playing yet one time he fell and that just did not feel good. He was scooped up, held for a while and was pretty fine after that. Luna, laughing, smiling, curious and playful in all moments. Ashley was happy with her new warm clothes and for her birthday snack that she brought. We sang her two birthday songs and she was HUNGRY ALL DAY! She played and ate and wanted a bit more and played and played. Violet, well, she was happy and playful with all the children.
Sandy, Nana, Violet, Luna and Ellie Turtle went on a grand hiking adventure. When they came back Violet, Luna and Ellie ran down a hill. They were SOO excited about that and told me all about this fun adventure!! While they were doing that, Ellie Acorn, Uma and Ashley had a grand time making their bird feeders. What they REALLY had a good time with though was putting their hands in the bucket of the bird seed. It did feel so good and they enjoyed that part immensely. And then, they really liked when they were able to take handfuls of the seeds and scatter them all around for the birds.
Eamon and Holden were IMMERSED with bouncing on the Bouncy tree as well as playing many dinosaur and imaginary games. They finally came over and made their bird feeders. When the others came back they did as well.
Lunch then happened. They all got in our beautiful lunch circle and had a glorious share around eating time each with their own stories offered.
After lunch they all had a GRAND, GRAND, GRAND!!! time running up and down and falling, up and down and falling, up and down and falling………the hill near us. We all had such a good time doing this!!
Getting back on the bus there was a lot of taking off of rain suits and some clothes as the day did get much warmer. This day was truly so very lovely, lovely, lovely!!
Love hearing tales of the children of the forest!
