September 24 – Weekly Photos + Tracking

One of this week’s highlights was a rainy trip to Matthews/Winters Park, where we found all kinds of moss and lichen to ID. There were also baby snails everywhere, and the discussion about where they came from included some fairy input from the younger group members. Follow-up research on snails proved that they hatch from eggs and wasn’t quite as magical, but very explanatory. We then searched unsuccessfully for snail eggs in the water. We also ID’d some bittercress, but based on the water’s dirtiness, decided not to eat that one.

We kicked off our Wildling groups this week. The Monday crew made slime + an insane obstacle course, plus the usual social play + mayhem of volume. Wilder’s gravel slime was the most popular, even if it was an accidental addition. On Wednesday, there was whittling, carving + fort-building outdoors with an entirely new group of enthusiastic kiddos. Looks like it’ll be two fun groups this semester!

The week of science experiments, if ever there was one. From DIY egg dye to rocket launching, we did them ALL.

We’ve had some personal growth this week as well – that usually feels awkward to me. Rosetta has a friend with a similar temperament, and that makes it hard for them to move on from disappointment when they play. They’re quiet, funny people, and disagreement shifts them into defensive mode.

We went outside every day! For hours. Please witness my glory – for I have suffered in its creation.

It began with a simple art closet organization project – it’s been on my list awhile, oy – and progressed into an obsession. The day I became a sea turtle, that’s what I looked like at the pool. Did people look at me? Yes. That is what Rosetta wanted, only she thought they’d be jealous, haha.

Cooking with Kids – Subscription kits we’ve loved

But I appreciate the ease of Hello Fresh compared to Raddish Kids, simply because I don’t have to prep and shop in advance of the kit. My kids are older now too, so they don’t need a tool or patch to get them excited anymore. They just like to cook.
