For an end of year 1st grade project, the students completed a research paper over their favorite animal, its habitat, and closed by creating a giant replica of their chosen animal. Harbor chose a penguin and we really enjoyed researching and studying about it for a few weeks.
The kids continue to grow and grow.
One afternoon, after school let out, we had another unexpected break in the Spring weather.
David had to work late, so I pulled on my bravery and loaded the three kids and our gear by myself for a hike through Garden of the Gods.
It was glorious!
Red rock formations towering overhead, late afternoon sun, and well-beaten dirt paths made for a splendid end-of-week celebration.
The following weekend, David suggested we explore a popular rock climbing area just a few miles from our home. It was a bit colder, but bearable.
The kids really showed amazing endurance and kept a quick pace.
We encountered lots of free-climbers using no equipment, other than good climbing shoes and a steel gut.
Colorado is full of lively people.
My sweet girl is almost two years old.
These pictures mean so much to me.
