Tree Class

Daddy took Olivia and Gabe to a "class" about trees at the Wildlife Center at Bur-Mil Park.

They got to color pictures of trees, talk about what trees give us, like food, shade, oxygen and lots of the things we use every day (toothpaste!?!)

Gabe had to point out every tall tree in the forest.

They had a great time getting to walk the greenway and pick up leaves and look at the different types of trees.

Gabe just being silly and cute after tripping over his feet for the millionth time. :)

After the walk, they took the leaves they had collected and made leaf rubbings.
This fit well with our nature study topic of trees we have been learning about with our Cottage co-op. While it was certainly more of an appreciation class, it did reinforce many of the things Olivia has learned recently.
