Spring Smells, Sights, and Sounds

 

We searched the cattails for redwing blackbird nests but had no luck.  O. made her own nest on a secret island she and D. discovered.  D. and I decided on a fort area that had a pretend doorbell and a secret password.  The password changes frequently, so it is safe to tell you that the first time it was, “Fiddle head island.”  I have already forgotten what it was the second time.  We also tried catching water bugs but they were too fast for us.

Such a great fort! We wonder who improved/built it? It sure wasn’t us!

D. has his own, tried and true routine for getting down from high in the Tilted Tree. He began teaching E. how to do it too!

E. was wearing slip-slidy boots not meant for climbing. We decided her own, bare feet were safer!

E. practices D’s method of getting down from the tree while pretending she’s a monkey.
