Today we went to Red Rock with the Life Learners. We have a favorite little picnic spot that the group has been to at least 3 times. I feel like there might have been other times that I missed, but I'm not sure. There's a little spring there and lots of trees for shade and great big boulders for climbing on. The spring always has these teensy little snails in it and there's always lots of pretty butterflies, birds, lizards, and horrible, disgusting (but interesting!) bugs for the kids to check out. It's always a lot of fun. Last year it was just Harper, Irina and I because Saren was in school. I remembered that and felt glad that she was there with us. The first time we went Saren wore a hole in the butt of her shorts by sliding down the rocks and she did it again! This time it was pants though. We had a good day and came home tired.
