The weather in NC continues to be cold and wet like most places this time of year. Of course, we are not letting that slow us down. This week the kids had an Adventure Journaling class at Latta Plantation where they went to journal in the snow on Tuesday. Wednesday most of the slush melted only to be replaced with fresh new snow.
The kids were up bright and early Thursday morning to get in some sledding and playtime. One of the nice parts of NC snow is the quick disappearance. It snows and it melts. Thus by the afternoon, we were able to visit with friends. The kids had wars, built forts and went exploring through the woods for wild animals. They had a blast telling us about their adventures that afternoon (and I had a blast hanging with my friend’s, laughing with my friends and learning from my friends).
Then today, Sims and I went on our Friday hike (the other two kiddos chose not to go today). I had no idea how much fun it would be to head out on the trails after snow fall. We decided to look for tracks. Within the first half mile, we identified skunk, raccoon, deer (buck) and rabbit tracks. We then headed down to Gar Creek to check out some of Sims’ favorite spots at Latta. When we returned home, we were welcomed by trail markers leading us to a snow owl family in the back yard and lunch in the dining room.
Next week starts our last quarter of our “school year.” I amazed at how quickly this school year has passed. I hope everyone ha a terrific week!
