I know I said: GiveAways… They are coming!!! I know I said Celebrities… I have a brilliant bunch and I know I said a swap… it is on its way!!! But as usual my blog has a day or two lag on life… So patience dear readers…patience!!! Back to the task at hand… our Saturday Spot… I have read the pages of this book so many times that I know this is one of those off to sleep pages that I can actually read with the lights out, with little voices saying “Timber” as they drift off to sleep:
We drive through Tokai forest so often on the way up or down the Peninsula but I never stop. As I was driving by the other day I hear: “Timber” from way in the back and in an effort to be the spontaneous mom of the year (I know… and it’s only July!!!) I pulled over and we went for a quick explore. And there was some reading, writing and arithmetic, so school was done in a vague outdoor sort of way!!!
Just look at that little guy:
And it did a whole lot of stuff that machines of this nature do – I was offered a whole explanation but it was beyond my area of (extreme interest) expertise. As far as I could tell it shuffled some logs around… which is very important to the whole “Timbering” business.
And discovery: “These little man are spiky pine needles… you can’t eat them!!!”
