Where care is most like home.

Apple Picking Field Trip

Late posting.  Friday was such a beautiful day.  My children had off from school and so did a few Daycare children. It was suggested that we go Apple picking. So we loaded up and headed to the Orchard. We must have been there a total of 2 hours picking apples, running around and sitting on the wooden swing.  It was a great day!  Enjoy the few pictures I took, had to use my phone, forgot my camera.

Fort Williams #2

The weather wasn’t hot today, and no rain.  I asked what the kids wanted to do for a field trip before they go back to School next week.  They wanted to go back to Fort Willims, so off we went. The Daycare kiddos, my daughters, as well as an old Daycare child and his Mom, my friend after ALL these years.. The kids really enjoyed going in the forts and learning more about them.  I, myself, was saddened by the disrespect that has been shown to these landmarks.  The two older girls found some sea “Prizes” to bring home. The littlest two played and snuggled together.  My littlest girl was very interested in what was inside the forts, until she got to a dark opening and just stopped..  We got our workouts climbing those hills, especially me since the two little ones would have taken A LOT longer to make it up those hills walking, haha.  I hope you enjoy the photos and as always feel free to leave feedback.

Field Trip to Sebago Lake

I had an extra small group on Wednesday. Some parents are dong last minute Summer activities with their children, which is wonderful.  So we headed to Sebago Lake State Park for the day. Two of my children went with us as well.  It was a lot of fun, the water was nice, built in the sand, THEN, the Yellow Jackets came out again, just like the prior day at Nason’s beach.  We avoided them as long as we could by staying in the water and putting all food back in the Vehicle.  By 2:45 everyone was getting tred.  So, we headed back to Daycare for some more outdoor fun.

Field Trip Nason’s Beach

The weather was great today so we planned a field trip to Nason’s beach. The early part of the day was a lot of fun. Everyone went in the COLD water and played on the playground, but just before noon, WOW, the Yellow Jacket bees were out heavy. We could not get away from them. So I decided I would rather head back then to chance someone getting stung. So it was a half day trip. Still fun.

It was such a beautiful day today. Except for lunch and naps/rest we were outside. The littlest two had a very active day. They were everywhere.  Sand box, pool and water table.  Also, today they could not get enough of the playhouse. They even used the tunnel several times. The older kids enjoyed the swings, sandbox, singing and much more. We had some visitors so they kids had more people to play with. Hope you enjoy the picturs. Feel free to comment.

We got a pass to the Gray Game Preserve and wanted to be sure to use it before the Summer is over. Which will be sooner than we think.  We all had a great time. Many animals that we didn’t get to see last time were out this time. You will se many, but not all, of the animals we observed. An Alpino Raccoon, Black Bear, Turtles, Fish Hachery, The Fisher, a Skunk, owls, Eagles, a Peacock, Deer, Turtles, a Linx.  We didn’t see the Moose, Fox or the Mountain Lion this time though. Another great day!!  Hope you enjoy the pictures. (for some reason, during the upload, the pictures  got out of order).
