44 monarch caterpillars found during our morning walk
10 free hours of daycare. Utilizing the resource for the three-est in th crew and let me tell you, the water is fine.

16 steps in a row is the record for this little one. Oh time…. why you punish me? (Yeah thats right I quoted hootie and the blowfish)
8 trips around the sun for this sweet cider making dude. I just lowered his ears yesterday and you wouldn’t recognize him, he looks so big.
1 gallon of tart, early cider down the hatch, with surely more to come!
7 hours of grown up time at Free Verse Farm making this amazing Adirondack pack basket. Not shown are the lovely mossy green straps and the soon to be stained version. It really is a useful and fun way to cart around all these wild apples!
2 full weeks of a schedule filled with crafting and chalkboards and math games and romping in the woods. Not back to school is pretty sweet so far.
