Fridays in May

On the Fridays in May we took part in a co-op that was organized by a friend from church. While older kids and teens were in a writing workshop, the little kids learned all about trees from my good friend, Andie. Andie is a wonderful gardener and she has beautiful trees and different plants all around their property. She showed all of the kiddos her seedlings and as we came back every week we could see the progress they were making.


Learning all about conifer trees vs. broadleaf deciduous.

Making their tree lapbooks.

Since we were in the vicinity, the kids and I decided to get a few errands done in the Denver area. On the first Friday, the kids and I braved the American Girl Store at Park Meadows. As I pushed the double stroller through the aisles of dolls and girly clothes and the vast landscape of accessories, I kept getting remarks like, "Wow! Three boys!" and "Three boys and one girl!" Someone even asked Dabney how many brothers she had. I guess boys are scarce around those parts.

In the end, we emerged victorious. The only thing we were after was a hair brush for Dabney's new doll and constant companion~ Kit.

On the last Friday, the children completed their lapbooks and then all of the families caravaned down the street to a little creek where the kids had a fabulous time splashing in the water.

(Dabney was running from what she thought was a snake.)
