What a perfect day for a trip to Montrose Park! We rode the bus to the park, had a picnic lunch, and took a hike in the woods. At the start of our hike we saw a chipmunk next to a tree Lou Lou's sister calls Chippy's Home. After this we decided to be quiet as not to disturb the wild life. Louise kept reminding us, "Shhh...!" This turned out to be a good idea as we ended up seeing three separate deer during our time at the park! The path we hiked led to Rock Creek where the children made wishes as they threw wishing rocks into the stream. After our hike we played on the playground before heading home.
Here are a few things said during our time at the park:
Jill as we watched the first deer we found: Do you think we should name it? What would we name it?
Louise held her wishing rock tight: Please can I have a kitty and a baby puppy.
Grace threw her wishing rock with a great overhand motion: Yes, I did it!
Tegan sat quietly for a long time before throwing her wishing rock and did not divulge any hints at her wish.
While on the swings, Tegan and Jessica wondered about a man sitting at a picnic table across the way, whether he might be drawing or reading or writing. Tegan thought drawing. Tegan and Jessica talked about what they like to do in parks. Tegan began excitedly talking about reading and drawing.
Tegan: "...sometimes I draw and then when I draw I want to draw more...And also I'm a bit chatty...I used to not talk much at school and now I talk a lot."
