Nature Center

 About a year ago we stumbled upon a wonderful program geared towards preschoolers that is sponsored by our local Nature Centers. So, twice a month we gear up and head for either Fountain Creek or Bear Creek Nature Center for a morning of fun, learning, and a hike outside. I honestly can't recall all of the topics the kids (and adults) have learned about. (Last week it was animal defenses. The time before it involved the five senses.) But I can tell you how much Jacob is learning and how much he enjoys himself when we go. Makenna is still small to pay much attention, but I know she loves being outside when we go.

Daddy got to hold the HUGE spider

So, of course, Jake had to have a turn!

And then I had to get in on the action. :)
