We have a little gang going. We all love nature and animals and hanging out. We build forts in the trees, watch the sunsets and hunt for bugs.
Tonight we spent about 3 hours on the beach collecting animals and cool rocks and shells.
Mommy’s friend (Miss Jamie) was helping us catch crabs!
Look, I am soaking wet but having an awesome time!
Playing out on the rocks catching walks, crabs and fish.
Do I look like I had a blast!?? YES I DID!
We were out in the water until after sunset. What a great way to end up the last day in Florida before vacation.
Look who is 7!!! You constantly amaze us and make us so proud. You are a handful but we love you so very much. You have become an amazingly bright, caring and compassionate young man. We are enjoying watching you grow up and become your own person. We love you so very much. -Mom and Dad
We had the party at McGough Nature Park again this year. We started out feeding the turtles from the turtle deck.
Then Mr. Joel gave us a really cool animal show. Everyone listed so well and really got into the show.
Hard to believe that all these kids sat still for the entire show.
Monty the Python.
I love snakes but don’t think I want one just yet.
That is NOT a real raccoon. Joel was demonstrating with the stuffed one how a raccoon can bite and scratch.
Everyone sang Happy Birthday.
Then we went for a nature walk in the woods and around the park with Mr. Joel.
We found some awesome trees to climb. Mommy managed to get MOST of the kids in the picture. Some of my friends crossed the corned of the turtle pond and were climbing in a different tree.
I really love my friends and I am so thankful that they could spend the day with me!
We met some new friends at Moccasin Lake Park. We had a nice nature hike in the woods.
I loved this wooden padlock shaped branch.
Leading the group. I told everyone about all the animals, plants and nature I could find.
Running back to Mom after I heard a bear. AHHHH! (There was no bear!)
We followed a peacock for about 20 minutes.
Today we had an on-site field trip for gifted class. I had to go in to school for a half hour. They had a truck full of little bars of dirt and gems.
They also had a portable sluice. We paid $7 each and got to find gems and minerals in our bags.
Sparkly things always make me happy.
The aftermath sludge water! I thought it was cool!
