Our house loves snails! It had been a few years since we participated in the Exploring Nature with Children, and when I saw that last week was snail week, I jumped in. We had such a great time revisiting these tiny little creatures as part of our science and nature studies! I loved so many of the books that we read – I mentioned in my post the other day that Wyatt loved Snail Brings the Mail, and we always love Escargot. The Snail with the Right Heart was a new addition to our reading, and I really enjoyed it. It’s about a snail (true story) that was born with his shell spiraling to the left rather than the right, which is a rarity.
Friday was Cerebral Palsy Awareness Day! We wore green in support, and read a few books, including This Girls Got Grit by Felicia Flewelling. I met Felicia on a mom’s retreat in Texas a few years ago, and she was delightful. She was working on her book when we met, and I was happy to be able to buy it this year for CP Awareness Day! We kind of spent the day doing all of Wyatt’s favorite things.
Saturday was so cold. I had wanted to pond exploring but we are going to have to wait a bit longer! We start a month long or so pond study so I wanted to kick off strong but .. we went for a drive in Detroit and walked around Belle Isle instead. And really, took a five minute walk around the garden. It was just so cold!
And that is about it! I’m looking forward to warmer weather and new adventures!
