today's the day the teddy bears have their........
An elated A got off the school bus the other day with his long awaited "helper bag". With a note from the teacher asking to write our adventures down in the class journal, we quickly got to work trying to come up with a new adventure for big bear and little bear. Fifteen minutes later, we were all padded up in our snow pants, loaded up our wagon, and ready for our journey to the woods to collect some sticks. We must have spent a good hour sifting through countless sticks to get the "perfect" ones for each bear respectfully, and when our wagon was full and fingers were cold (o.k, more like mummy's hands....they were having no problem...) we headed back home.
Once inside the warmth, the boys and I gathered all the sticks and began building them some new stick homes.....it was such a wonderful way to spend the afternoon, and left us all feeling so good. These are the kind of adventures that make winter so much fun, and nothing beats warming some toes by the fire after you are done!
