well, we said it was w for wading in the water since it was w week.
there is a beautiful trail with a creek on the other end of town.
the weather cooperated for two of the three scheduled field trip days. we have one more trip to take on the next warm and sunny day.
i bought water boots for the kids.
and then took pictures of them…all lined up.
these were mostly for foot protection (there is plenty of broken glass) since they’d fill up pretty quickly. : )
along a little trail we found a (college?) built tee pee. perfect size for these little friends.
there are oodles of photos, so many more to sort through…but these give you a sense of what it was like!

The Great Outdoors!! What an adventure you went on. I love it!!
Awesome! Thank you for so many photos–I really do feel that I have a sense of how wonderful that day was. So very good to see.
Seeing these boots lined up at preschool reminded me of a conceptual art project by Eleanor Antin, called “100 Boots,” from the early 1970s. In a series of postcard/photos, she created a whole narrative in which her 100 boots went on trips, had adventures, etc. A couple of images: http://www.hotboots.com/antin.html
I can’t imagine a more perfect field trip for a preschooler.
How WONDERFUL!!!!! (Let me know if you ever want me to come out to help with a program…water education is my “real” job)
We plan to do this with our Pre-K class soon. Wow–I can’t believe you bought all those boots!!
I love this adventure! Kids really don’t do this much anymore and it is so nice that you show it is possible and fun to do. I used to hang out down at the creek all the time as a young child!
Kristen, what a great creek adventure – and the kids must have been so excited to find the teepee. I love the pictures of the gumboots all lined up in a row.
Love Love the experiences you give your children!
