Seasonal activities

Last week we went with our 4H group to Goose Pond sanctuary to help collect thimbleweed seeds for the Madison Audobon Society.  They are going to use these seeds for prairie restoration of a nearby field.  It was very satisfying to collect the seeds and white fluff off of the stem and toss it into our bucket.  C needed a rest in the tall prairie grasses after all of our work.

One of the groups we belong to (Earthscouts) did a fun seasonal activity, stringing soaked kernels of Native American corn onto necklaces.  S was a pro with the needle.
After a busy week, and a fun visit from Gigi and Abuelo on the weekend (good to see you, Ma and Pops) even a yummy organic lollipop couldn't compete with the need for sleep.
