April - Week 1
We weren't sure if it was Winter or Spring this week. One day we were wearing rubber boots and splash pants while out riding trikes on bare pavement, digging in the soft sand, making streams and lakes, and hauling buckets of water from the ditch; the next day we were in a snow blizzard! As we walked through the January-looking forest we listed lots of things which have an O sound in them: snow, crow, log, rock, fox, wolf, oak tree, pussywillows.... (There are bushes covered with soft gray catkins at the bottom of the hill). Inside, the Tim Hortons cafe offered a popular dramatic play opportunity with even more shoppers and cashiers now that it is situated inside a Walmart!
