A Taste of Spring...

It got up near 16C yesterday and Jack and Connor were out most of the day
According to Rod, they were mainly "building snares" for various critters, including deer, in the lilac bush, and all of their activity centered around setting up a camp in the snow and exploring the (12 foot round) thicket.

Nerida noted how much more imaginative their play is out there when there are no adults around -- and it's absolutely true. This is where the learning begins. Six is going to be a good year.

  1. my boys spend a lot of time plotting how they can trap various things from our woods .. my favorite was their snake trap, which involved a flat warm rock. ;^)


We're happy to hear from you; thanks!
