Yesterday was another wonderful day with our boys' co-op. We were learning about orienteering using a compass, which I am ashamed to say I had no idea how to use correctly before yesterday. This co-op has become a highlight of our weeks. A great group of friends doing fun and interesting things together, and this trip was in a beautiful forest that was new to us, as well. We started the afternoon admiring this little brown snake which was as gentle as can be (very important given how little I like snakes!) After a quick lesson on how to use a compass, we set off an a scavenger hunt using the coordinates that one wonderful parent plotted in advance. When the kid all made it back from that adventure, we headed further into the woods for a few games of predator and prey, and to enjoy the rest of a beautiful fall afternoon.
