We have spent time exploring our outdoor play space while the weather is still (mostly) warm and sunny.  

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.    

This vapour trail caught the attention of a few students from our afternoon class.  Airplanes seem to fascinate almost all children!  We could also hear one in the distance, but we never got to see it.  I am sure this topic will arise again, so I read up on vapour trails.
