One of the great homeschool moms that we have met since moving had planned an outing to CrawfordLake for a group of us.
The first part of the day was spent learning/exploring an Iroquoian 15th century village. The second part involved snowshoes.
Here the boys are working on a craft before starting a big outdoor portion of the morning.
The longhouses were big! Bigger than I anticipated. It was easy to see how these would have been a warm and welcoming place to be in the winter months.
The leader taught us how to play a First Nations winter game. It involved sliding sticks as 'snakes' across the winter snow to see whose would go the farthest.
They had a good old-fashioned brown bag lunch and then were taught some more by the facilitator.
A little how-to on putting on the snow shoes and we were off!
Although it was a little chilly here today we didn't feel it in the cover of the trees.
And putting all that energy into hiking with snowshoes on helped us stay warm too.
I forgot earlier this week to add E's Tuesday dinner info.
Tacos. Very yummy.
