Salamander Class

Megan salamadarMegan attends her own science class once a month. Miss Krista, her teacher, has taught each of the children and does a wonderful job.  Megan gets practice sitting still, raising her hand, interacting with other children and learning really neat science.

Today, Megan learned about salamanders.  The older kids all remembered when they had that class and asked to tag along.  Everyone held the salamander and helped out where they could.

As the weather warms up, you may be able to find salamanders under logs and leaves.  They lay their eggs in water in the spring.  We have never found one around here, though some friends find them often at their house.  We will be looking for them once the snow melts a little bit more.  And, in case you are interested, holding a salamander is fun!

Building Snowmen

We have been wanting to build snowmen, but the weather is not cooperating!  We received a few more inches of snow last night, and because it is so cold out (windchill makes it feel around -10 degrees) we decided to create our own inside.
