We are into November classes and are met with a new challenge for our older classes.  When they arrive at 4:30 the sun is just about ready to set…..  so what to do???   Hmmmmm let’s see …..

WHY OF COURSE!  GO HIKING IN THE DARK!!!!

I must say that when I was little I never walked in the woods.  These k-3rd graders were all geared up for going.  Initially there were some who wanted to go back to the barn and there were intermittent yelps of , “I’m cold!”  but we pushed on.  Equipped with our flashlights we shuffled through the leaves and tripped over roots and looked at how bright the moon was!

With Nicole, our helper, at the back of the pack we all stayed brave and on a steady course!ImageImageImageImageImage

I was so proud of the hikers.  Everyone made it back to the barn and on the way there Matt discovered some ice!  Nice way to end the hike!!!  

Don’t let the darkness deter you !!!!  imagine a time before lights and batteries when nighttime settled in…. then what?   You still had to go outside to get “stuff” or go to the bathroom!!!  YIKES ! Brrrrr
