The homeschool co-op we are part of met today. One of the classes my kids are in is a nature class taught by a woman who works at a local nature center. She has done such a great job of teaching the class about animals and their homes this semester. Part of the class period is always spent outdoors. Today, the class went snowshoeing, and, since I am a parent- helper in the class, I got to go, too. We went on an hour-long hike in the snow. Fourteen 2nd and 3rd graders and 3 adults, traipsing around in the snow. Crunch, crunch, crunch. Lots of falling down and getting back up. Crunch, crunch, crunch. It was a fun, frosty-cold hike. :-)
