Back to the Farm!

Here are a few pictures from today's trip back to the farm off of the Yakima River.  We weeded around the trees and shrubs we planted this fall, checked the water quality, and learned about the effects of erosion.


My kiddos also enjoy the BABYMOUSE series by Matthew and Jennifer L. Holm :-)
Yari, Hailey and Ariadne reading BABYMOUSE

We took some time today to Drop Everything and Read in honor of Dr. Seuss' upcoming birthday.

What fun!  
Apparently we don't like to read in our seats if we can help it!

Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss!  <3 Eoin

On a side note we are missing our friend Jaime who just moved.   If you read this Blog Post Jaime, remember to go to academicsarecool.com to practice for Math is Cool and we can't wait to see you soon!
