Oz Farm Week 9

Tuesday October 16, 2018
First Quarter Moon

Today we had our 3rd visit to Oz Farm.  When we arrived, the first thing we did was circle up next to some beautiful Burgundy amaranth.  During circle, we talked about all the things we wanted to do during the day; like visit the Grandmother Walnut and play in the river.  Then the weather watcher did her job, determining that the weather was sunny and warm.  A perfect day to play in the river!  Next we had our rule keeper remind us of our class rules, and we were ready to begin our adventure!    We began with a romp in the redwoods, where we played an amazing game of hide and seek tag.  

Out of breathe and tired, we paused to have snack under the tall, beautiful trees.  It was hard to leave this spot because we were having so much fun, but there was a lot more we wanted to do, so we said goodbye to the Redwoods and moved on to the Grandmother Walnut.  Once there, we climbed, played on the swings, and collected little walnut shell halves to make boats.  Here too, we wanted to stay and play longer, but we were determined to make it to the river today, so we said goodbye to Grandmother Walnut and continued on our journey.  We were really lucky to have our friend Margaret join us for this let of the journey.  She took us to a part of the river we had never been to before, where there was a beautiful shore in the sunshine.  We immediately took off our shoes and socks and jumped in the river!  The water felt amazing!  We splashed and played the rest of the afternoon!  Leaving this spot was the hardest part of the day.  All of us wanted to stay and play in the wonderful water.  Luckily for us, we get to visit Oz again next Tuesday!
