I was freaking out a little over the weekend about the monsoon and how we were going to have to reorganize the schedule every time it rained… but so far we haven’t had a problem! Its all sunshine and smiles this week.
The girls went on a scavenger hunt looking for science and technology all over the property and while we were out, we found some Sonoran Desert Toads in the pond! It looks like there are 7 of them and they are laying eggs everywhere! There must be at least 8,000 in the pond! It was really neat because we got to talk about how they only come out to mate 2-3 days before a rainfall of at least 1 inch and usually only during the Monsoons! You learn something every day.
The girls also learned about different clouds and made cloud pictures. At the end of the day things got a little messy… we were painting with shaving cream!
Some other highlights of the day were kayaking, swimming and making weather board games!
