On Thursday we followed tracks in the mud, splashed in puddles and enjoyed the 50 degree weather. We even picked the leftover carrots from the garden!
On Tuesday we played in a foot of snow!
When children arrive we begin our day outside. This gives children the chance to wake up with the fresh air and have time to greet each other, share stories and move their bodies. Depending on the temperature we typically stay outside for 20-30 minutes before going inside to hang up our winter gear and wash our hands before morning meeting.

|As you may see when you come into our yard the deer are very active. Here we found 3 deer under the apple tree and eating our arborvites. The next morning we found A LOT of tracks and even deer hair shown below.|
