since it wasn’t a good weather day for our creek field trip, we took a walk in the rain instead.
we took a wagon and let the youngest kids ride first (and longest).
we made sure to dress for the weather in school boots and fuzzy pink hats. : )
once we got to the busy intersection of first street and main street, we checked out the signs.
everyone got a turn to press the button…
we looked toward the traffic light to check the signal:
see, there is an orange hand telling us DON’T WALK
then, oh the excitement, the signal changes to a person figure telling us to WALK!
(i admit i held my breath until we were all across…i forgot our walking rope which we usually hold on to during busy street crossings!)
one benefit of not holding on to the rope: you can make your arms like airplane wings.
we passed a preschool friend’s house on the way back. we knew her dog might be waiting at the window…and he was!
hello, waffle dog!
finding a big empty tree trunk finished up the walk…then we got under covers for story time.
thank you, ms. carol, for documenting our rainy walk!
