Week 9; Oz Farm

Tuesday October 15, 2019
Waning Gibbous Moon
When we arrived at Oz Farm this morning, we noticed something was very different.  Can you guess what it was?  
As we walked toward the Redwood Grove, the students observed how dark it looked under the trees.  Indeed the sky herself was overcast and gray, and all of us were wearing our cozy warm sweaters.  All of a sudden, we could really feel that Fall is here!  Some children even asked that we not visit the river, for fear that the water had frozen!
Bravely, the children went into the dark woods, and it wasn't so scary after all!  We found a beautiful spot to hold morning circle, and the children learned a new song to call in the rains.  We spent a good deal of time in the Redwoods, playing chase games, hide and seek, and searching for bugs.  The children found so many amazing insects, including a large and surprisingly friendly cricket (whom we suspect may in fact be a wandering clump!)  We also visited our good friend, the Grandmother Walnut, and spent some time climbing her branches before heading back to school for lunch.
