Schooners Gulch Week 5

First Quarter Moon

Oh my goodness, Schooner's Gulch is kindergarten heaven!  The kids had such a great time exploring and playing at this beach that we didn't even have time to get to any of the activities I had planned!  They were so eager to get started that trying to sit down and complete morning circle became quite a challenge!  
The first thing we did after circle was jump right in the creek.  How silly the grown-ups were to think we would be leaving this place dry and sand free!  The kids got right to work building a moat on the side of the creek and channeling the water in fun new ways.  Somehow we managed to break away from this activity to have snack, and as soon as the food got put away the kiddo's got right to work scrambling up the side of cliffs, finding cool caves, and even little "hammocks" carved into the stone which made great beds!  We gazed in awe as huge flocks of brown pelicans soared overhead, played tug-of-war and jumped rope with seaweed, made sand castles, and played keep away with the ocean as her waves tickled our toes in the sand.  It was a perfect sunny day, and having to say goodbye to the beach was hard.  We can't wait to go back!!
