Walk in the woods: Beau's preschool grad day.

Beau enjoyed his couple of months of preschool. He learned a few new songs. He dealt with being around some kids who were different than him & made friends with some kids he'll go to school with next year.  He had a tornado drill, & became familiar with the school bus. 
And that pretty well sums it up.
He was proud to graduate.

We had a good walk in the woods the day of his graduation.
He stopped to smell the trilliums
(which, he found, don't have much scent.)
Spotted a tiny Spring Peeper in the leaf litter.
Admired the delicate starflowers.
Carefully took a closer look at the Jack in the Pulpit.
And felt the softness of new ferns. 
It means the world to me that his (and all of our kids') most important & influential classroom has been at home & hands-on during these early developing years.  
And it is my hope that they always learn from their surroundings, by experiencing as wide a range of positive experiences as possible, and by being good observers.

Develop a passion for learning.  If you do, you will never cease to grow.  -Anthony J. D'Angelo
