Harrison returns to The Nest

A gorgeous September day! During today's Circle we talked about squirrels; what they eat, where they live and what they look like. We read the book Nuts to You by Lois Elhert, learned a fingerplay about a squirrel who lives in a hollow tree and then we pretended we were squirrels. Ian hopped, climbed, ran,wiggled & munched all over the living room. Everett tried to mimic him as little brothers love to do & Harrison just laughed at the two of them. Ian enjoyed creating some tree bark rubbings but had the most fun looking for squirrels in the backyard and gathering acorns.
The younger boys spent most of the nature walk squeaking and squealing at one another. If it is true that they can understand each other.... it seemed to be a very exciting conversation:)
Happy the hair-do!

Hopefully Everett's other front tooth grows in soon...he's looking like a jack'o lantern with the one tooth on top, two on the bottom.

Ian's treasures for the Nature Table!

Harrison meets The Very Hungry Caterpillar, he especially liked chewing on the plum.

This afternoon we had a wonderful visit with a family who enrolled their 3 children. So next week we will be welcoming Nick, Matt & Bella to The Nest. I'm excited to share the program with more children.

Why is it that babies look so darn cute with food all over their faces???
