The day started with us chasing Charm off the beautifully dyed cotton cloth, but he looked so pretty!
A picnic of veggie wraps and a special Hanson’s pop under Rainy’s favorite tree (Scarlet Maple); take notice of Rainy’s face, she was upset because Porter was sitting beside her. You see, she’s not a big fan of little brothers; turns out she has good reason, by the end of the picnic he had poured his can of Hanson’s pop right down her back on purpose! Porter loves Rainy and will do whatever it takes to get her attention! He got it alright!
We made 75 jars of jelly- dandelion and violet. Please visit here to see how we did it.
After our friends went home, I caught my little ladies with a ladder under the Redbud tree so they could reach the yummy tasting blossoms!
Taste like sweet peas!
We also did a little listening experiment called Fox Ears. You know how many animals have cupped ears that move toward the direction of the sound they hear? Notice our dogs Denali and Sophie have triangular shaped ears that are cupped forward-
Try making these triangular shaped ears by cupping your hands behind your ears and- here’s the weird part- open your mouth wide.
Now, move your hands around your ears to hear in many different directions. You might look silly, but you will hear better.
Outdoor Challenge Participant of the day– little cutie Pidge here, from Nugg Blog, is helping his mama in the garden. This little guy prefers to be outdoors and mum has a difficult time getting him indoors at night for bed.

“The purpose of Children & Nature Awareness Month is to celebrate the benefits of experiences in the natural world to children, and to all of us, and to offer alternatives to nature-deficit disorder,” said Dr. Cheryl Charles, President and CEO of C&NN.
