Today we learned about different types of vegetation growing in different altitudes and conditions. We would have learned more if Mikro had not been in an impossibly bouncy mood, but alas, I think the boy has a touch of spring fever. One huge accomplishment today: he hiked down the steep goat trail behind the nature center for the first time ever today, and gained a huge helping of self-confidence. He's always balked at this spot in the past.
He also got brave and checked out the primitive shelter that was built by participants in the weekend nature center program (which we missed). I was very pleased that he was willing to go inside it, but worried he'd pull it down on himself in his bounciness... Thankfully, that didn't happen!
Later, we looked at birds, played in the sand, and at the playground.
