The children and I were delighted to find stones which have been painted to identify the perennials planted in the flower beds. The children used magnifying glasses to look closely at the flowers and leaves. We have begun reading books about leaves changing colour in the fall as well as discussing what other seasonal changes are upon us.
In a couple of weeks we will walk around the university campus to observe the changes.
