Winter goodbye, winter goodbye, you may no longer stay. Springtime is here today. Winter goodbye, winter goodbye.
A happy vernal equinox at Wrens Nest! And what more of a Vermont way to ring in spring time than playing in the snow..
A cozy morning with some animal friends, like kitty, woofers, and even a deer.
We learned all about Robin Redbread from Grant! Some favorite facts include that the Robins beautiful blue eggs take 14 days to hatch and a Robin has a lifespan of two years. He also brought in a fun maze that led mother Robin back to her nest. Thank you, Grant!!
So many friends brought sleds to share and we were all so thankful!
The deep snow with a crunchy layer ontop proved to be hard to walk through and even gave us some sledding challenges...but we trudged on!
Sarah brought in her toboggan which was so much fun. We could fit five or six of us on it and really fly! The challenge was getting it back up the hill, but with a combinations of pushers, pullers, and snow clearers we were able to have many great rides.
Blowing bubbles! Not cold enough for them to freeze but definitely still fun.
Snow kitties making their kitty nests.
Snow angles in the crust...
We made up a game for throwing snowballs. Someone created big boot holes so we made snowballs and tried to land them in the holes-there was a lot of cheering for each other.
We visited our sit spots to see if there were any changes or signs of spring. Afterwards we shared our observations. Buds were still visible but hadn't changed, some of the green grass from last week was covered up, and we noticed some new branches.
Lots of snow and sun makes for some soggy kiddos. We went inside for some good lunch and to attempt and dry ourselves out...
We all had fun working on the mazes that Grant brought in as part of his presentation!
Some cozy time with new books...
We really got relaxed while listening to some stories before going back out to play before we said goodbye.
Bring on the mud, springtime we are ready for you!
