Mystery Guest and Family Traditions: The Collins Family share their family history and play an animal guessing game with us
James' mom and dad, Abby and Mike, shared with us about their family history and the long standing cabin of the long ago matriarch of the family. The children were interested in the antiquated photos, and in popcorn style shared comments and questions about the photos of James. "You're hiding James," said Cate about a photo of Abby pregnant with James, in Wisconsin where the family cabin stands. But where is James in the photo? "In Mommy's tummy!" exclaimed James.
"That's a long time ago!" -Elena
"In our family, before we marry, we have to make sure they love the woods." - Abby Sullivan
"The hats so big!" -James
James learned how to drive last year.
The Animal Guessing Game... The children LOVED it!
The children were handed printed image, like cards, of many animals that James and his family see when they are at their Wisconsin cabin. Then Abby and Mike took turns sharing clues so that the children could guess the animal. Then we had to find out which child was holding the card. Below are a few of the animals named, the others were Bald Eagle, Sandhill Crane, Wild Turkey, Sandpiper, Merganser, Green Heron, Porcupine, Otter, Cedar Waxwing, and Coyote.
